I needed a day off from working on the boat and decided to use this one. Today was a cold but clear day in Virginia and I decided to use my rental behemoth to visit the city of Colonial Williamsburg. Back in the early 1980's when I was but a youngster I attended the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg and it was a very strange experience to revisit the campus and my previous digs. The College required freshman and sophomores to live on-campus and I was lucky enough to have won in the lottery and garnered a single room in Hunt Hall, in the first picture. Back then men's and women's dorms were segregated and now this dorm is unisex (or is it multi-sex as there are now more genders than there were in the 80's?). The campus has not really changed in the 30+ years since I was there, some of the building are gone and have been replaced; not surprising since even back then there were asbestos-related demolishments going on. The large field in the middle of campus is now a small field as they've added some very large buildings. The fraternity complex where I lived for a bit (until we got thrown out) is now normal student housing with names like "Lion" and "Griffin" instead of my ΦΚΤ and the new fraternity buildings are a lot nicer.
After walking about the campus I walked down the main strip in Colonial Williamsburg, a popular tourist destination where one can visit one of the oldest settlements in the USA.
