New England and Canada cruise - 2008

Heather Moutray, Doni Roper, Lori Roper, and myself all took a cruise to New England and Canada.

Before we caught the ship in Richmond, Virginia, we spent a few days in the Colonial Williamsburg area. Our hotel was right across the street from the College of William and Mary. My brother-in-law Ambrose went to school here so he was able to give us a list of things to do and places to eat.
We hadn't been in Colonial Williamsburg one day when I got thrown in the stocks. I swear I was innocent.
We also saw a dog with the coolest sunglasses walking around so we had to take a picture of that.
We always had to be on the lookout because you never knew when some colonial gentlemen would be riding their horses down the street.
On our way to Richmond we had enough time to stop by Jamestown. They have made an entire replica village complete with living historians.
We then stopped by Yorktown which was the site of the last major battle of the American Revolution.
One of our main goals of this trip was to see lighthouses. I'd say we were successful.

Then we were on to Nova Scotia where we went on a walking tour of the city. One of our first stops was the Citadel because we thought it would be interesting. It was a great choice because all the soldiers that were there were wearing kilts -- SCORE!!!!Then we found a beautiful park that had a Junior League floral design. Of course, we had to get a picture of that.
And there was a little miniature of the Titanic. Most of the victims of the Titanic were brought to Nova Scotia, and most of those that didn't survive were buried here.All too soon our time in Nova Scotia was through; however, we got a nice send off, a man in a kilt playing bagpipes.
