Sign for the Boot and Shoemaker shop on East Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg. I was taken both by the graphic design of the sign and the color of the shoes that quite nearly matched the sky.
Looking east towards the old Capitol building on East Duke of Gloucester Street as large flakes of snow fall.
I visited The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller
Folk Art Museum in Williamsburg, VA today with the family and was absolutely floored by the collection. I am normally not a big fan of folk art but in this case the collection of works combined with the presentation of the works was really impressive. Here is an example of a Marine Carving from the Sidewalks to Rooftops: Outdoor Folk Art gallery.
Beautiful afternoon for a walk along the river at Belle Isle State Park (http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/bel.shtml).
Yesterday my daughter, dog, and I took a very pleasant walk through the woods and down to the Potomac river at Caledon State Park (http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/cal.shtml) in King George, VA. The park was blanketed in roughly two inches of crunchy snow that was beautiful and made a great sound as we walked. Considering we didn’t pass as single other person on the trail I think the snow also kept the hordes away which allowed us to enjoy the pleasant sounds of birds signing, snow crunching, and waves lapping along the beach. I don’t like cold weather very much but hiking in the snow has some definite pluses!
Note: Wow, I haven’t posted anything to my blog in over a year and I posted this image from my Flickr account just as a test of different ways you can share photos from Flickr. I would never have guessed that so many people would see it much less click on the Like button. Thanks for all of the likes!
