Early Saturday Morning in Colonial Williamsburg:Rain & Wind & Sewing

Saturday, October 29, 2011
Susan reporting:

The same Nor'easter that blasted most of the Northeast left its mark on Colonial Williamsburg yesterday, with much rain and wind and chilly temperatures (though fortunately no snow!) While only the bravest and those armed with the sturdiest umbrellas ventured out into the streets, it was a perfect day to stay indoors beside a fire. In the Margaret Hunter shop, seamstress Emma Cross, left, took advantage of the pale sunlight to in the shop's window to stitch a hem into the silk gauze of a new cap.

Friends and I were in CW for four days starting Thursday, and were highly entertained by the hardy employees who carried on the programs and street theater despite the weather that soaked our wool cloaks and petticoats. We're so very grateful that the weather didn't dampen their spirits!
