Our last full day in Williamsburg on this trip was atypical for us: we dressed in our "civvies" instead of our colonial clothes, and didn't even spend the entire day in the historic district. Not that we neglected another opportunity to enjoy some of our favorite things about CW.
We enjoyed lunch together at Chick-Fil-A, and then spent as much time as we could bear at an antique mall on the northwest side of town. Some of us could bear more time than others, so some of us returned to CW in the afternoon while the balance of our group continued antiquing until suppertime.
We'll end our Colonial Williamsburg posts this time with a trip through some of the backyards along Duke of Gloucester Street. Last March, Gretel and I had fun navigating our way through the paths behind houses all over town, so I thought I'd give you a little taste of what it's like to explore the "other side" of the historic homes. It was good to be on vacation!
