Time Traveling

So I am not at That Old House;
haven't been since Wednesday morning.

I am here. . . .

Daughter Anne and I are in Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia.
Until tomorrow.
When we head back to New Jersey, with a couple of auction finds in the back of the minivan.

 We were lucky to be here for the ritual sacrifice of some tourists.

The main drag through the colonial area is Duke of Gloucester Street, or "DOG Street."
Which most people think is because of the initials of the name of the street.
But which I think is because dog owners love walking their pooches down this car-free mile.

I couldn't resist taking a picture of two Corgis taking their owners for a stroll.
(Hello, Oliver of Linderhof; this one's for you!)

Have a fun St. Patrick's Day, y'all!  -- Cass


  1. Arf!

    (I don't have opposable thumbs so Mom is typing for me)

    It's nice to see fellow Welshman -- the one on the left looks like he could be my twin!


    Cass -- Oliver was thrilled to see kinsman and asked me to type the above message-- he thought it was so thoughtful of you!

    I envy you Williamsburg -- it's a place I so want to go to -- and we were so close but didn't make it on a DC trip! Sigh!

    Can't wait to see your finds!

  2. Sounds like a fun trip and we will be anxious to see what you found!

  3. Oh how fun. I would love to make that trip one day. Great pics. Have fun. Hugs, Marty

  4. Beautiful weather we have been having for your visit! Next time cross the James River into Surry County and Isle of Wight County. We are olden too!

  5. Hanging out in my neck of the woods, huh. Hasn't the weather been totally glorious for touristing? I love Williamsburg ... I live within an hour and a half of it, and I don't get there nearly often enough. Have fun!!

  6. Ah you sure picked some pretty weather to go to Wmsbg. Your first photo--is like an old mixed-feeling kind of friend as for so long I worked on a counted cross stitch of that, but the shades of bricks got so tedious..eventually it was put aside and never finished. Alas.

  7. This sounds like so much hubs, the history buff, would love to visit Williamsburg. Looks like you are having great weather!!


  8. Cass-It aounds like you are having a wonderful time! I am happy that you got the chance to spend some time away with your daughter! Happy St. Paddy's Day! xo Diana

  9. Sounds like an enjoyable trip - thanks for sharing. Looking forward to hearing more and seeing more pics.
    Have a safe trip home!

  10. We love Williamsburg.....been going there since we were kids....I always wanted to buy one of those blue and white lamps with the state name on it....after being in Jersey for 6 months last year I might have to rethink buying that one.....I guess I am officially a Southerner.

  11. Cass, what a beautiful time of year to be in of my favorite places..I know you had fun.....
