Our Fun Excursion

Yesterday Lynn got out of his meeting and was back to the hotel by 1:45 so we jumped in the suv and headed on down through the Tidewater Of Virginia. The day was absolutely glorious! Photobucket The sky crystal clear, and autumn was singing praises in the trees! PhotobucketPhotobucket
We came upon this wonderful new bridge that spans the historic James River and the landscape revealed the expanse of the amazing coastal plain of Virginia, far different from the Blue Ridge Mountains of home.

and then we headed due east across myriad forests and murky swamp land

heading all the while to fabulous.... Williamsburg!

We were particularly interested in the Market Square area at the west end of Duke of Gloucester Street- main street to the Colonial town.

My main objective to buy something for my Vintage Christmas Swap partner hosted by Heidi of Foxglove, Fabric, and Folly!

Even though it was a 4 hour drive home last night it was a marvelous adventure!!!

  1. We were in Williamsburg last spring, for the first time. Loved it!! They also have a great antique mall on the outskirts there.
