One afternoon, as a matter of fact the ONLY afternoon that it wasn't pouring down rain, we visited Colonial Williamsburg. It was very interesting to see and the certainly made our history seem more real. The farm below was growing cotton and tobacco. I must say I didn't realize that cotton had such beautiful yellow blooms. We thought it was a flowering shrub.
Some of the homes in Colonial Williamsburg were historic only and some were full time residences.
