The High King Lives

Colonial Road Trip Part 3: Williamsburg, Virginia June 4, 2014

Hello dear ones! In March my family took a road trip from Savannah to Washington D.C. On the way we stopped in Williamsburg, Virginia. It is an awesome colonial town. Unfortunately a winter storm blew in and our two days in Virginia were not very colonial. It is a rare occasion that Colonial Williamsburg closes but this time it did. Thankfully our hotel was close to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum. We didn’t have far to drive in the snow. I think we saw some of the neatest historical pieces at Ripley’s. We did stop back in Virginia on our way home from D.C. but it was late at night. So we only caught a brief ghost tour at Colonial Williamsburg. The weather was so bad that the tour was all inside the tavern. This same night we drove to North Carolina in a hail storm! It was scary and big trucks were all over the sides of the road. Anyways, we will definitely have to go back to Williamsburg and make it one big trip.

However, I’ve got lots of pictures from Ripley’s and of us playing in the snow. The Holiday Inn at Williamsburg was very cozy. They even had a fireplace. We watched a lot of Duck Dynasty and kept safe from the storm. Ripley’s closed early for the storm but we made it all the way through the museum in time. Enjoy the pics! Tomorrow I share the last part of our trip: Washington D.C. We saw plenty there.

In the pictures below: Ripley’s in the snow, the world’s tallest man, a Civil War surgeon’s kit, a slave contract, an African snake totem, Ripley’s hollogram, the Statue of Liberty gum sculpture, Abe Lincoln’s picture in butterflies, butterfly art, and us playing in the snow. We saw a lot but that’s too many pictures to share.


God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
