A "bookish nerd" and a "computer geek" as we call ourselves, we love visiting museums and historical places when we travel. In ten years of marriage, we have been to Williamsburg three times and this city has gained a foothold on our hearts.
I think my favorite Williamsburg memory is spending the fourth of July at Williamsburg. As we walk hand-in-hand along the cobbled streets our hands melt together, it seems its over 100 degrees every time we visit. It is fascinating to listen to the stories of the many workers at Williamsburg, all very knowledgeable about the Colonial era. We usually down numerous bottles of water and Chris has been known to give us a surprise dowsing. Unfortunately the public facilities seem to be miles apart.
We consume cold fried chicken, buttery biscuits and homemade old fashioned ice cream. Chris has a peculiar affinity for cemetaries so we have taken rolls of photos of unique gravestones. We love to end the evening sitting on blankets in the center of the village listening to crimson-faced men in full uniform playing fifes and drums as the bold colors of fireworks fill the air.
What about you? Is there a place you love to visit, one you could return to again and again?
