Outdoor Wednesday: Street Scenes in Williamsburg

Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. To see many, many more outdoor photos or to post some of your own, please visit her blog.

I've been doing a little photo organizing, and happened to find some shots we took in October two years ago on a trip to Colonial Williamsburg. It's really a fascinating place and I'm almost ready to do it again. Almost. The year we were there, it was unseasonably hot - seemed more like August than October. Still, it was a lot of fun and not exactly what I expected. But if you go, be prepared for the crowds. And wear comfortable shoes! (Click on photos to enlarge.)

A friendly greeting at the post office. The printer's and
book binder's workshops are behind the P.O.

Carriage ride. Nice horsies and a lot of the stuff nice horsies
leave behind.

Out for a stroll.

A colonial conversation. Wonder if they're discussing
the tax on tea?

Outside the shoemaker's shop.

And the shoemaker's shop window.

And the Williamsburg windmill.

  1. I enjoyed your tour of Williamsburg. I have not been there, but from your pictures, it is somewhere I would like very much.

  2. We never get tired of visiting Williamsburg and the whole tidewater area of VA. We took our girls there many times, and in fact were supposed to go there last week, but canceled those plans and landed in California instead, to visit one of our girls.
    Lovely photos --makes me want to go back NOW.

  3. I think Williamsburg is one of the most interesting tourist destinations in the states. Your photos are terrific. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  4. Great photos! Thank you for the tour of Williamsburg! I have never ben there.

  5. We went there once, thinking that it'd be a fun serendipity trip. Well, we never thought about crowds, and there were NO rooms within an hour of the place! Need I tell you, we've still never seen Williamsburg.

  6. Thanks for the pictures of Williamsburg. We were there in June of 2007 and really enjoyed it. We would also like to go back.

  7. Beautiful pictures of Williamsburg. Thanks for the lovely tour, this is a place I would really like to visit. Kathy

  8. I really want to see these places. I would probably want to live in these places. I might would even want to OWN these places.
