Williamsburg

Williamsburg, VA is located in the very center of the Virginia Peninsula and is not only historic in itself—as recreating the colonial US at the time of the Revolutionary War—but is surrounded by other historic places: to the west is Jamestown, the first English colony in the new world and to the east, Yorktown, where the British met their defeat and thus ending the Revolutionary war. Years later, this same battlefield saw vigorous defenses being built and some action for the Civil War. The peninsula itself sticks out into Chesapeake Bay, the original and primary artery of the establishment of the English colonies in that part of the world.

And by the way, the crab cakes were wonderful!

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
