Soooooo, We made a last minute decision to go on vacation (something that seems to happen quite a lot!) to visit Williamsburg. Huzzah! (My patriotic mood is quite strong due to the fact I brought two books about the Culper spy ring, and Mrs. Cote’s The Voice the Revolution and the Key. Also, we stopped at Barns andobel and got, among other things, a book of the history of the revolutionary war.) We were talking about this vacation off and on for a couple weeks. Sunday came, and we weren’t sure if we were going. I mean, we didn’t have a place for Dixie, (our dog) and we didn’t have a hotel. Then suddenly everything fell into place (thank you Lord!) and we left Sunday afternoon. Not last minute at all, huh?
Also, sorry the first three days are in one post. I decided that since we didn’t do anything Sunday I would combine that and Monday, but then I forgot, then I also forgot to blog Tuesday (Maybe it had something to be do with the internet not being invented yet?😁)…
Sunday and Monday were driving days. We didn’t do much Sunday because we left at four In the afternoon. 😜🙃😉. Thus, all I have are these pictures.
Actually, one thing did happen Sunday night. It was late, and we couldn’t find anything to do for dinner, so we decided to get food at a rest stop. Ummm, that was a mistake on our part. Due to the fact that we don’t really eat much fast food, some of us got sick and were up half the night…. 🙂
Monday, we drove from Ohio, to Williamsburg Virginia (brownie points if you know which queen the state was named after!) We stopped at Barns and Noble to get books because I definitely didn’t bring enough. (See my reading material photo. That was before Barnes and Noble😏). We bought Fawkes from the author of my favorite Trilogy, Nadine Brandes. IT IS SO GOOD!!!! We also bought a guide to national parks, the forth book in the Five Kingdoms series by Brandon Mull, and a couple other books for my siblings.
Tuesday, we slept in late because we got in late. When we woke up, we decided to go to Williamsburg. I wore my period dress that I had gotten from a previous trip to Williamsburg. 🙂 We took a tour of the Governor’s Palace, saw George Wythe’s house, explored some of the shops, saw a fife and drum demonstration and ate Linner (Lunch & Dinner) at Chownings Tavern. During the tour of George Wythe’s house (Which I wanted to see because that is where Patrick Henry got one of the signatures on his law license. Mrs. Cote has trained me well with her books. 😏), we saw a teapot that loudly proclaimed “NO STAMP ACT.”😁
Thank you for reading this rather long post. I’m much obliged. 😁 If you have any good history book suggestions add them below. Also any questions or comments. 😁
