Summer Trip to the East - Virginia - Colonial Williamsburg

One of the days we visited Colonial Williamsburg.  It was very interesting and fun even in the sweltering humidity and heat!
Cedar shingles.
The meat house.
A kitchen functioning as it would in the 1700s.

The basket weaver.

The jail.
The wigmaker's shop - probably our favorite place to visit!

Homemade rootbeer!
The highlight of the day was when this band of fifes and drums marched down the street.  We all started to follow them to central square for a reenactment.
