Chesapeake Bay

Our last day of excitement ended Saturday. We ventured over to the Chesapeake Bay area. We crossed the Chesapeake bridge/tunnel and ate lunch at the Sea Gull pier which overlooks the ocean. Afterwards we went out on the fishing pier and took these pics. I only wish I had a fishing pole and some live bait!
The view was heavenly! Living so far from the ocean.......it was a treat to see the open waters and being a bird lover I fell in love with the sweet little sea gulls.

We heard of a large Antique show being held at the Virginia Beach Convention Center so we decided to check it out as well. It was really nice but I didn't buy a thing. I think I was so overwhelmed I couldn't decide what to buy. It was fun just seeing some really old and unusual things. After the show we headed back to Williamsburg for a quite dinner and to get some rest for the long trip home on Sunday.

I will be adding some new items to the website later this evening. I hope you can stop by and check them out. Back to work for me. Take care!

More Colonial Williamsburg

Here is some pics of more of my favortie shops. Hope you enjoy!

While exploring Colonial Williamsburg we visited many working shops like the blacksmith, cabinet-maker, silversmith, cooper, etc. We also toured many of the historial buildings such as the Courthouse, Printing Office & Bindery, Capitol, the Govenor's Palace and more. Here is a few more pics of some of those places.

We finished off the long day walking in Williamsburg by going over into New Town and watching a movie. We watched Role Models. Very funny movie but the language was a little too harsh. I'd rather seen Appaloosa but unfortunately it wasn't playing. Saturday we head out for the Virginia Beach & Chesapeake Bay. I'll have some pics from there for you tomorrow. Until then, take care!

Colonial Williamsburg Day 2

It's Sunday now and we just got back home. We are snuggled in at home on a cold Kentucky night. We had a wonderful trip.....but it's nice to be home! My first visit was to the barn. I missed the animals so much. They greeted me with much love and with hopes of getting a late night snack!
Sorry, I didn't post anymore while in Williamsburg. We were so tired every night we crashed as soon as we got back to the room.

Anyway, it rained practially all day Thurs. so we didn't go back to Colonial Williamsburg. Instead we went SHOPPING! Mostly visited Antique shops. Boy was that fun! I bought a couple small things. Seen a lot I wanted but most items were not within my budget. We went in the Big Yankee Candle store and it was so beautiful and smelled so wonderful you just wanted to stay there all day.

On Friday we returned to Colonial Williamsburg and walked and seen as much as we possibly could. The atmosphere was so realistic, we felt like we were back in time living in the 1800's. The shops, houses, taverns and people look just like they would back then. My favorite part was the Colonial garden shop. I bought a large bell jar and some flower seeds in the cutest packets. I gave one to Jill my sister and one to my mom. They took care of all the animals and tended to the shop while we were gone so I picked up a few little Thank You gifts for them.

Fresh herbs and Bee Skeps!

Wild Rosehips for sale!

I wanted this so baddd but it wasn't for sale :0(

I hope you enjoyed the garden shop half as much as I did. I will post some more pics tomorrow!
