My Vacation Part 2: the Williamsburg Winery and Historic Jamestown

Last week my husband and I went on vacation. We split our trip up into several stages so we could see and do more things (read part 1 here).

We stayed at the Williamsburg Winery for the 2nd stage of our journey. My husband had picked out the Wales Room for us, and oh, was it beautiful! We were greeted by beautiful paintings and tapestries and a suit of armor!

Once we were settled in we drove to Historic Jamestown to see what we could see. We went to the Jamestown Settlement to look through the museum and walk through the recreated settlement. The amount of time and money spent to bring this incredible project to life boggles the mind!

We saw the recreated boats that the settlers used, explored the fort, and walked through the Indian village. Always on the prowl for fibery goodness, I learned from the reenactors about twining, which is how the Native Americans in this area made yarn.

Back at the hotel we had the most wonderful dinner and slept in the most comfortable hotel bed I’ve ever experienced.

Come back to hear about the last part of our vacation tomorrow: Colonial Williamsburg!

In the mean time, please enjoy this most beautiful brick wall.
