Back from Williamsburg!
Whew! I'm so dang tired. We went to Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, Newport News. And I'm sure some other places I can't remember!
I've never been a history person, but wow, when you're there where it all happened, it really makes it more "personal".
While we were in Jamestown, we watched a demo on glass blowing. Very cool.I wanted to jump the fence and get right in there with them. Poor guys..all dressed up in their colonial garb, working outside in front of those 2000 degree glass ovens. They kinda looked bored with it all. I guess if I was confined to making the same candle stick, vase, or inkwell over and over again, I'd be also. There was a small display of things the glass blowers had done on their own time. Some of those pieces were really nice.
We also visited a couple of plantations, antique malls and galleries. I didn't see any mosaics or stained glass..a lot of pottery though.
One night we went to a mystery dinner theater. Oh, that was so much fun! A couple of the actors kept referring to me as "Ms. Reba McIntire" because of my red hair. I told them "No...she has short hair now!" Mine is quite longer than hers. Oh well. It could've been worse.
It was a great trip with my sweetie as we celebrated our 20th anniversary!!
