Colonial Williamsburg

Today I spent the whole day at Williamsburg. Even though this is a second visit, I’m finding more and more to do here.

Today started with another long visit to the Palace kitchens.

Then a Crystal Concert that included a glass harmonica, a glass bowed psaltery, a set of glass bells for ringing, and a glass violin.

I then took a behind the scenes tour of the stables and carriage house.

After a dinner at the King’s Arms Tavern and a fine glass of ale, I attended A Grand Medley at the Kimble Theatre and laughed so hard that my ribs ache two hours later. Take one down on its luck 1790 theatre troupe, two German twins, three Cherokee Indians, a ferocious porcupine, puppets, a juggler, and mix well with other assorted mayhem. Irma Vep seems like Shakespeare’s King Lear by comparison.
