An Afternoon in Colonial Williamsburg

Before my family left last weekend we decided to put the unpacking of boxes and setting up of bookshelves and cribs aside for a few hours and check out CW (as the locals call it). Darin and I had walked around a little bit on our own but hadn't gone too far into the Revolutionary City yet so it was fun to delve a little deeper into the city. 

I really don't understand the fascination with taking pictures in the stocks at places like these. It just feels kind of wrong to get so excited about taking a picture in a torture tool (and yet I stuck Shae in it). But really, what will people be taking pictures of hundreds of years from now that represent our current state of torture and punishment? Waterboarding? That could make for a good picture.

My favorite store thus far (and I don't see it changing any time soon) in Merchant Square is a hand-crafted/imported candy store. They have so much cool stuff! I love walking around drooling over all of the goodies they have there. While there with my family, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to try out the bacon soda. 

Don't think we'll be getting it again.

Sadly we had to say good-bye on Sunday. After a week in PA and then the weekend with family down here, I think Shae is lonely and unsure how to handle so much time to himself without people and animals smelling him and carrying him around everywhere.
