While visiting Williamsburg, we met another cooper. This cooper is a maker of barrels and containers. We learned a lot of interesting things, but I think our Cooper is cuter!
Williamsburg was a lot of fun. We picked a good time of year to visit because it was not very crowded.
The Governor's Palace was beautiful. At the silversmith, I learned that since there were no banks, people saved their silver coinage and turned it into bowls & flatware. Engraving the pieces ensured that they could be recognized, if ever stolen.
The gardens were in full bloom and beautiful.
