Christmas Decorations Overload

It has been blustery cold here at Colonial Williamsburg.  We were a bit unprepared for the low temperatures this week and didn't pack nearly enough heavy clothes.  The extended weather report we checked last week promised that it would be a lot warmer!  But we have soldiered on and managed to take photos of almost all of the exterior decorations at this historical park.  Tomorrow, we'll also be taking a Christmas Decorations Walking Tour and learn about some of the construction techniques and natural materials for creating their elegant creations.  It will be our last full day here, and then we will be visiting Mount Vernon before we return back home.

Are we close to reaching Christmas decorations overload?  Almost!

Are we ready to get back to our warm home soon?  Yes!!!

P.S. We ARE having great fun! The folks here at Williamsburg Lodge have been terrific and the staff in the historical park have successfully taken us back in to that glorious time of our Nation's early days. 


  1. Is there such a thing as Christmas decoration overload? I love the apples in that wreath. Find out how to do that!

    Frozen to the bone overload I understand. Hope that you both have a pleasant evening warming up and getting ready to do it all over again tomorrow.

  10. Oh my adventurous friend. How I've missed you so! Your card made it's way to me and it's so beautiful. Love the polar bear. Your cards are always so nice!
