This photo was taken in late August 2015 inside the living quarters at the Great Hope Plantation located in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. The period of time in history was around the late 1700’s.
I heard that Great Hope Plantation will no longer have interpreters but will be a self guided tour with signage only.
It’s amazing what is seen as I walked through the Peninsula Memorial Park in Newport News, VA. Many displays of life size sculptures of statues are displayed throughout garden.

An early morning walk on Duke of Gloucester Street in Williamsburg, VA is a refreshing treat for both mind and body. This particular morning was cool and chilly.

This particular time of day a warm glow flowed from window of this home that gave me a cozy and comfortable feeling.

This fallen piece of tree trunk amazed me. It made me wonder how time, weather, and nature can carve something to resemble an object. Is it the forces of the elements or nature’s magic? What ever it is I enjoy the beauty of what nature offers to show.
With colder temperature and frost on the window, Colonial Williamsburg, VA has joined in the winter fest. Cradled between merchant square and the historic Colonial section on Duke of Gloucester street is an outdoor skating rink. A place for the young at heart.
