... Washington's arrival and a rousing speech imploring Williamsburg's residents to join the revolutionary militia. The girls were thrilled to see the cannons firing, emitting a sulfurous odor which reminded us of Rotorua (see Big Trip v.1). Touring the governor's palace and capitol building, we gained an appreciation for the tensions that led to Lord Dunmore's fleeing the colony with his family, and the growing movement to break away from the Crown. ...

It too had historical impetus as all of the stories involved actual residents of Williamsburg.

While doing some research about the site, we discovered that on the last Wednesday of the month several times a year the lead ...
... shop assistants and carriage drivers were dressed up in period costume. One man in particular obviously loved his job, and it was so nice to see. Everywhere we saw him he would tip his hat and wish us a good day, or comment on the lovely weather. These small experiences throughout a day often make it so much more memorable!
We bought a snack from the bakehouse which we ate watching tourists scurry up and down Main Street, horses and ...
