Well we went to Colonial Williamsburg again this past weekend. Squeezed out one more trip as our membership expires at the end of the month. What I didn't know and what we were fortunate to have come at the right day was the illumination. We have always gone during the day and left at closing or before that. Never have we been there to see the lights, fires or candles.
We got there in the early evening as the sun was going down . It was soo nice outside at 70° in December!
We were staying for an evening show at The Capital!
As the darkness approached candles were visible in the windows.
Then the show was about to start!
Fire, drums and fifes, rifles! Soldiers marching and the action is about to begin!
A stroll down the street was a new sight to us as most of the houses had lights in the windows!
Although we didn't participate; ice skating was going on as if we were in upstate NY in the middle of winter. YES, people we have ice skating here in December in 70°!
It was a great experience. I saw so many pictures via instagram and can't wait to renew our membership to catch more glimpses of times, seasons or holidays I missed out on this year @colonialwmsburg.
