I was walking down a side street in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, when I saw this gate. The lock looked sturdy, old, and strong. Not only was there a lock but also a chain. I wondered how old it was or if it even worked anymore. Maybe a large, ornate metal key would open it.
I realized that seeing this lock also had a strong impact on my imagination!
Have a look here for more information.
A few weeks ago I drove to Colonial Williamsburg for the afternoon. This is the first place I’ve visited since moving to Virginia last month. The weather was perfect and warm enough that I was carrying my coat as I walked. This was a very unusual thing for me to do in January! As I walked around I decided to take some pictures as souvenirs of a mild winter day in a historic area. Right now it seems more like winter to me. However it should warm up in a few days and then I’ll have to go on more adventures.

It was wonderful to see these bright colors.
