Colonial Williamsburg 2014 - Highlight Reel

I've been away for *ages,* so sorry! Some things happened - some good, some bad - and of course I've been in Colonial Williamsburg for the past week and without time/computer/sleep enough to post :-).

I have much to share with you, but first, a "highlight reel" ...

First, this happened....

Military Through Time at Jamestown Settlement, on Sunday afternoon. Maggie straddling a WWII motorbike, in appropriate 18th century dress, but of course!
And then this chicken.
Aislin, the CW blacksmith's apprentice, and Abby, one of the CW millinery apprentices, in their "Morning Ramble" costumes, during the coffee break, explaining their clothing and accessories. Abby's shoes (the blue ones) were hand-made on original late 1780s lasts - talk about "walking through history"
We had one really lovely day of weather, which our pod took advantage of with a carriage ride...
We picked up a couple stray dogs along the way. Oh Darn.
This happened.
And lambs, because reasons.
So I know that's totally not even remotely enough, but don't worry, I have lots more to show and tell. I *just* got back, though, and have a gazillion things to do (including adopting a new puppy), but I promise I won't leave you hanging long!
