I took Rachel to Colonial Williamsburg for her birthday. We spent two nights at a resort, and then a day in the Colonial city. It was nice, and she had never been there before. The people we spoke to were all very entertaining, yet extremely knowledgeable. We toured the Capitol, saw a number of smaller shops, and then saw a production by a group of actors discussing theatre history from the period and putting on scenes. After that, we went to the Burton Church and the Governor's Mansion, where Patrick Henry spoke. We had a nice dinner at Chowning's, before a ghost pirate tour. All in all, a lovely day. I forgot my camera's battery, so our pictures were only taken with our phones. These are my favorite pics.
