Williamsburg in Winter






Today my dear friend Tiffeni and I went to Colonial Williamsburg for a walking tour. Tiffeni used to work there, so she took me on a tour of some of the secret special places and hidden gardens within CW. During our walk I fell in love with wells, benches, gates, and many other unexpected treasures we stumbled upon. Tiffeni shared stories with me of secret colonial love affairs and pointed out which of the historic buildings were haunted. Going off the beaten path and staying away from all the more touristy areas proved to be extremely enjoyable and I felt badly for the others who were missing out on these beautiful hidden places and great stories that are not shared with the tourists. Sadly the weather turned against us and we had to pack it in for today, but I cannot wait to go back for part 2 of this adventure. Here are just a few of my favorite shots from today.
