Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg are considered America’s Historic Triangle, mixing the beginnings of America’s settlement with the finality of hard-won independence. We spent all our time in Jamestown and Williamsburg, and will have to save Yorktown for a future visit.
Jamestown continued to thrive, but the capital seat of Virginia Colony eventually moved just down the road to Williamsburg. Our first stop was the public library to check in on the internet and post a blog of our previous days. Then, with delightful weather to walk outside and the complete absence of crowds, we opted to walk the streets and browse the public-admittance shops rather than purchase a ticket to tour the historical buildings. Mostly, I was plotting a future trip to celebrate Christmas in Williamsburg – a prominent item on my bucket list!
Here are a smattering of dwellings and sites on the streets of Williamsburg:
A quick drive to the coast will take us to the Outer Banks . . . come back and check it out!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
