|Today started out very windy and cold with a forecast for rain. We decided to do some car tripping and try Jamestown and Yorktown so we could stay in the warm truck. We got over to Jamestown, a National Park, about 11 and went into first area we saw, which happened to be the glassblowing area (one of the trades the original Englishmen had). We continued on and found that the road around the park was closed due to potential bad weather....talk about a bummer. Went in the Visitor's Center and learned that they had a walking tour of the old settlement that was 300 yards from the VC and on the water, James River. Well let me tell you, with the wind coming off the water about 20 mph, we did not need anybody to tell us to forget that. Instead we went back to a little community of New Town, just outside of Williamsburg and where Stephen Godoy lives (he is out of town), and had lunch. Left there and went to the Christmas Mouse gift shop, yes just like Myrtle, and started looking for Anna Lee's. My luck was good as the 2011 were not yet in. By the time we left there, the sun was up and the wind was down, so we decided to go to Colonial Williamsburg and get our tickets for tomorrow (supposed to be good weather). Lady that gave us our passes said we could use them today too, so we went on in and saw 3 different programs. One of the programs was Martha Washington visiting and talking with the townspeople just outside the Capitol. We were standing on a stump so that we could see better, just enjoying ourselves, when about halfway through the program I get a tap on my leg and a guy in costume looks up at me and says "That's my stage". Yes, we got down and he got up and started doing his thing. No wonder it had such a good view.
