I grew up in the Williamsburg, VA area. I love EVERYTHING about that place. My hubby and I are planning on going there for vacation sometime.
So we dragged the 3 kids still at home to Williamsburg for a week,
skipped all the family drama and ate Thanksgiving by ourselves.
I don't know how many family members are mad that we did that......
Or maybe they're all glad we did, LOL!
Anyway - we had the most beautiful weather - and thoroughly enjoyed
ourselves - stayed at the Powhatan Plantation (timeshare) and made the
kids do all the historic stuff. Who, after some prodding, told us
they actually did enjoy it.
But the greatest thing - we did the Bits and Bridles tour - which is a
1.5 hour tour of the barn and a history lesson of the carriages. The
barn is not as fabulous as you would think - quite small, actually, I
pictured something on a much larger/grander scale. But meticulously
kept and gorgeous stalls. They are trying to revive the Canadian
horse breed, and the American Cream. Very interesting.
So - what great topics did I miss? There was no internet in our
place, and when I got back I had like 367 emails.
