As much as we love to travel, we love returning home! I particularly missed my recliner and bed, LOL. We had gorgeous weather for our trip home yesterday, and enjoyed the spring colors throughout Virginia and east Tennessee. We are amazed how much green foliage has appeared here at the homestead during our weeklong absence. Gardening activities will be in full swing these last two weeks in April, that’s for sure!
We had a few glitches with our vacation, but nothing insurmountable. We got our fill of fresh seafood, which was one of our goals. We also wore ourselves out with walking, LOL. When weariness set in, we relied upon the courtesy van at Williamsburg Lodge and the historical area’s convenient shuttle bus system. Our biggest frustrations were with unruly children and their clueless parents. We found there to be higher concentrations than usual, and we are still wondering about the causes.
All in all, we loved Colonial Williamsburg. We took the time to immerse ourselves in many of the available programs and tours. The entire staff was professional and gracious. You can’t help but learn about that time in history and the unique individuals who laid the foundation for our country. It is a special place that Americans should make an effort to see and experience.
I hope that you followed along with my Twitter postings while everything was quiet here on my blog! It seems that Marty, my furry blog greeter, napped a lot and didn’t get into any mischief. Thank goodness! You'll be happy to know that I took about a thousand photographs during our trip. It is so easy to do with digital photography! In the days ahead, I plan to put together a Photobucket slide show for Colonial Williamsburg and share some pictures on other places we visited.
So, I am BACK and looking forward to catching up with my blogging friends again!
