On our trip to Virginia in April we spent one night and most of 2 days in Williamsburg.

It was so pretty and not at all what I expected.  
I don't know exactly what I thought it would be like, maybe a little more separated from "real" town?
I don't know, but it was a pleasant surprise.

We stayed at the lovely Inn.  
I could have spent all of my time in a little nook reading a book and enjoying my view out the window!

This is the back side of the Inn, I am standing near the golf course.
Our room was on the second floor in the far right wing.

Our room is the dark window. I love the dappled light on the lawn ~ we had beautiful weather.

The room was so beautiful, I loved the toile wallpaper.

This was the best part though, we had a wood burning fireplace and they came and made a fire for us and left us a stack of wood that lasted quite awhile.
I was in heaven.
{Can you tell I am a hotel girl?  Not a fine diner at all, but I love nice hotels:-) }

I loved that we visited in spring.
Besides the flowers that were everywhere and were so lovely, there were lambs behind several houses.

They really do gambol:-)

I loved this picture, just as I snapped it a couple strolled into view.

There were beautiful gardens everywhere.

If I remember correctly this was the jail.

The weather started to deteriorate in the afternoon and so we really just did a quick drive by of the Jamestown settlement.  We drove around and then stopped for a quick run out to the site.  There were lots more buildings there than I expected but of course my camera died and so I just have this one of the sign and the monument.

Then we motored on to Norfolk,  just for 1 night.  It was rainy and cold and I satisfied myself with a good book and glances out the window at the busy river/seaport.

Early the next morning we drove back to Richmond to catch our plane home. 
We were home for a just a few days and then May 1 another adventure unfolded! 
The fun never ends around here ~

Williamsburg is one of my favorite places to visit. We love it and have returned more than once. My favorite time was Christmastime, but I loved the summer too. What I have NEVER done is stay inside Williamsburg at an Inn. I love inns and would love that. I've also never been to Jamestown. I need to do that!
