My daughter Ivy recently asked me what my dream job would be. I of course answered, a British actress (think Judi Dench), or a famous author (still working on that one), but a close third would be a Colonial Williamsburg (C.W.) actor-interpreter.
I did not know what to expect from Williamsburg. So when I went downtown in search of a bookstore I was in awe! The period buildings, the college where Thomas Jefferson attended, and of course Colonial Williamsburg.
While we were there we were able to spend time with Jim’s brother and sister-in-law. Here are the children with their cousin Noah.
Jim and the children watched a play which strove to portray what life might have been like for slaves at this time. Apparently it was very good. I wouldn’t know because I had to leave with a screaming baby (Lucy).
Later they found me sitting on a very uncomfortable tree root after she had finally fallen asleep.
What else can I say? If you love history and beautiful surroundings you should visit Williamsburg.
