Williamsburg: Window Back in Time

Use your imagination and pretend that you are Thomas Jefferson looking out of this very window, contemplating the challenges of governing Virginia in 1780.  Jefferson lived right here in the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg.

Okay, it is not the "very" window - it had to be rebuilt after a fire, but it is the same window in the exactly the same place, based on the architectural plans they found.  That's good enough for me!  I love the bright green gardens set against the ornately carved window molding.  Look at how the light from outside adds a soft glow.  Just gorgeous!
