Peculiar Places – Colonial Williamsburg
horse hooves knock on the gravel path, scattering small, insignificant pebbles, while carrying both jolly passengers and rein-holding tour guide. The crisp, December air nips at our rosy faces. I quickly press the hand-made paperclip shutter on my camera, as my friend stands in front of a picturesque, damp and mossy brick wall. Merry Children hold their parent’s hands as they soak in the atmosphere, dripping like bacon grease with history. The candy store was filled to bursting as we purchased a pound and a half of candy (judge away) from an attractive cashier in an apron and baseball-style cap. We sat outside, feeling as if we were in some sort of charming sidewalk cafe, munching happily on 10-dollars worth of candy. The Governor’s palace looks cheerful in it’s grand state with wreaths in the windows.
It’s hard to walk through Colonial Williamsburg, VA with out catching the contagious happy feeling that swarms through the air like a cloud of gnats. As you can see, i went there with a few friends. It was so marvelous, and well worth the drive.
