Colonial Eye Candy

Here are the remaining photos from my trip to Colonial Williamsburg. They include visits to the wheelwright's and blacksmith's shops, and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum.

The bad news is, I didn't take very good notes (meaning, none) at the wheelwright's shop.

The good news is, Shannon Rogers did. Be sure to read his write up and see his video here.

The other bad news is, I didn't take very good notes (see above for definition) at the blacksmith's shop.

The good news is, the pictures include a guy in a kilt.

The Abby Aldrich Museum features a number of galleries which showcase various categories of American folk art.

The period furniture and musical instruments galleries were my favorite, but paintings, textiles, and pottery are included in the enormous museum.

The bad news is, we had to leave Colonial Williamsburg, with all the wonderful things it has to offer.

The good news is, we bought yearly passes.
