Today we bought our tickets and now have three days to see all the buildings open to the public in Williamsburg.
We chose to walk from the visitor's center to the village which gave us a chance to stop at the plantation, a recreated Virginia farm from the 1700.
The first group of workers we came upon were staying warm by the fire.
This is the family home, dirt floor, no windows, plumbing or electricity. Remember this is 1770.
The chicken coop was attached to the house making it easy to protect them as well as get eggs each morning.
Everything was done by hand and your entire day was spent working from the time the sun first appeared.
What will we do if we run out of oil?
