Trip Log -- Day 10
We began our roundabout journey home on Wednesday, July 15. Colonial Williamsburg was our first -- and longest -- stop. It is amazing! This living history experience is worth all the praise I have heard over the years. The shops, homes, and government buildings are either original or rebuilt -- all on the original foundations. Amazing. This is not a condensed example of a colonial town; it is the town. I enjoyed listening to the living history interpreters explain the work, play, politics, and experiences of 18th century America. I am glad we planned to stay most of two days. We could have used many more!
