As we left Bethesda, we headed south a couple hundred miles and back in time a couple hundred years... to 1775 in Colonial Williamsburg. As usual, we were late. Consequently, upon arrival, we realized that we weren't left with enough time to explore the apothecary, capitol building, governor's palace, and (most importantly)... the JAIL! So we needed to stay the night and continue our anachronistic hijinks into the next morning. We were fortunate enough to ...
... birthday is the 29th and we weren't sure exactly where we'd be, so we celebrated early. Tonight we took a tour, again in candlelight, called the Ghosts Among Us. It too had historical impetus as all of the stories involved actual residents of Williamsburg. We also explored Jamestown,(they've done a lot of new excavation) and were able to learn so many new things about America's first settlement.

... at the front. This was governors, wealthy, and traveling families such as Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. The poorest members of the town where in the back of the church. We had a late lunch at the Tavern where we were seated in the cellar. The stairs winded down to the cold room which was lit only by candlelight. It took a moment for our eyes to adjust. The chairs were low to the ground. They were known as posture chairs. They forced you to sit up straight and keep ...
