The gardens are plentiful there. There are formal gardens at the Governor's Palace, and many informal gardens throughout the Colonial area.
They also have tons of vegetable and kitchen gardens there, too! I love this shot of some of their cabbages!
Each day the Revolutionary City came alive with conversations with our founding fathers, re-enactments and even parades! We all took part in a march with the fife & drum corps to the Capitol to hear the reading of the Declaration of Independence. It is truly one of the most touching activities we took part in and one I will never tire of.
There are plenty of animals throughout the Colonial area. They have a rare breed program where they are working on keeping some animals from becoming extinct. We got to take a carriage ride and learned that our pair of horses were the ones who pulled Queen Elizabeth's carriage when she visited Williamsburg!
If you ever get the opportunity to visit, I highly recommend you make sure you see and experience a visit with Patrick Henry. He is very moving and inspiring. After hearing him speak (this was my fifth visit), I came home wanting to write letters on matters that I feel need to be addressed in various areas of government!
Before I end, I want to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us to enjoy the freedoms and liberty we have here in the United States. Thank you to all our military and their families and may we all remember them tomorrow as we celebrate Memorial Day.
Until next time!
