Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia

Colonial Williamsburg is absolutely beautiful to visit, but it is even more beautiful covered in a blanket of snow.  The snow has been cleared and much was melting, but there was still plenty.  I will talk about our visit later, but for Photo Friday (over at DeliciousBaby) I decided to share some snowy pictures.  I know many of you are sick of seeing snow, but I don’t see it but every few years so I am still fascinated…cold but fascinated!

    I share your sentiment, there is indeed something fascinating about snow and it’s especially fun to hear the exclamations from children when they first see it. Now the folks on the east coast who are in a ton of snow right now may not agree (at the moment). But these particular blankets of snow look harmless enough. Great post!

    I’m in Bangkok so I’m not sick of snow at all. These are beautiful shots of a lovely light snow that doesn’t look like it’s stopping anyone from going to work or school!

    We are waiting for snow in Atlanta. 🙂 I feel bad for the people up North but we are so looking forward to it.

    We visited Williamsburg at the height of summer humidity! They do a great job casting the re-enactors. Our kids asked lots of questions and they always stayed in their roles. What a contrast this is. I can only imagine how the founders felt in the depths of winter snow without central heat!

    I have wanted to go here! What a great place to take kids. I look forward to your write up and love the pictures. I can’t imagine life in the snow, let alone without central heat!

    It looks a lot quieter and more mysterious with the snow, I’m imagining that in fairer weather it would be more crowded to visit.

    Fun to see it in snow! Fresh snow is cool & brings the kid out in folks.

    We even got a tiny bit of snow here in southern Spain this winter (for about 20 minutes before the sun returned) and that was really a thrill! A very rare & almost unheard of event.

    We do have skiing in the mountains nearby, but mostly our winters here are T-shirt weather & sunny.
