Walking through the streets of Colonial Williamsburg, a seamless part of the town, one can get lost in time.
Here a group of actors and actresses gather in front of the rebuilt Governor’s Palace preparing for a re=enactment.
This public lawn is bordered with Catalpa trees, which will bloom with violet orchid like blooms in late spring.
Buildings seen on either side of the lawn are part of Colonial Williamsburg, but the very public Duke of Gloucester Street, just behind the photographer, is lined with businesses and the Bruton Parish Church, which are not.
Duke of Gloucester Street is the lively center of life in this part of Williamsburg.
It connects the College of William and Mary with a hub of popular restaurants and shops, and the Colonial area. The College Bookstore fronts on to DOG street, and residents from all over the area gather on Saturday mornings for the weekly Farmer’s Market.
Setting for parades and seasonal gatherings of all sorts, one will always find something of interest to see and do here.
