Colorado Visitors

Dan, Annie and I were very lucky to have Sonja, Angie, Shane and Lindsay visiting from Colorado. We showed them all around the historic triangle; Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg and Yorktown. In Colonial Williamsburg we enjoyed visiting the Charleton Coffee Shop and tasting a sample of the hot chocolate. After our fantastic tour of Yorktown we had an ice cream treat on the water then Lindsay and I played together on the York River beach. We loved building sandcastles, dipping our toes in the water, drawing in the sand but we did not love when a boy playing in the water near us found dead crabs to show us!

We encountered this guy in CW

We were happy to run into a fife and drum parade while walking down Duke of Gloucester Street to our car. Their tune put a pep in our step and a smile on our faces.

Dan took his family to the glasshouse at Jamestown where there was a master craftsman and an apprentice working on their trade. Shane overheard the teacher pointing out cracks to the pupil in his glass work. Guess he needs some more practice!

 Annie was at first a little suspicious of our new friends but by the time they left she was hopping up in Shane's lap and whimpering as we waved good bye to them on Indian Springs Rd. Annie's whimpers echoed our emotions - we were sad to see them go but definitely look forward to seeing them in Colorado again soon :-D.
