Colonial Williamsburg...The People/Actors:-)

We loved Williamsburg.  I can't wait to go back.  A highlight of our experience were the people.  They set the mood.

There are many opportunities to see these folks in action.

Memorial Day 2012

Never forget all that was given and is still sacrificed today for our freedom.
Freedom is not free. Today I will enjoy the freedom that we have here in our country and pray a prayer of thanks for the brave souls that have paid the price for that Freedom.
God Bless.
