Williamsburg, Virginia

My husband goes to Charleston, South Carolina once a year on business. This November he stopped at Williamsburg, Virginia on his way home.
And took pictures of sheep for me.
Williamsburg has a rare breeds program.
Is this a Leicester Longwool sheep?
The streets are charming.

Look at this brickwork!

My husband's fellow painter Stapleton Kearns standing on the lovely brick sidewalk.

Inside the apothecary's.

The stages of a coin silver spoon.
The forge.

The armory.

Spinning and weaving.

Beautiful 18th century gardens!

Best wishes for the holidays to you all. Peace and joy. Quiet and contentment. Knitting happiness. Family love. Faith and hope. Good health. Good friends. Belief in the goodness of the future. Charity. Forgiveness. Gratitude. A good garden. Captivating books. Intriguing color, light, life.

And a happy (and healthy and prosperous and fun) new year to you too.

I love Williamsburg, but have never seen it with a coating of snow.

All joys to you,

Thank you Sharon! I haven't been to Williamsburg in years, hope to go next year.

Please thank your husband for that virtual tour! I have never been to colonial Williamsburg, and since the buildings are not likely to be wheelchair accessible, the glimpses I get need be through others' eyes.

Glad you liked the photos, Diana!
