Quenching Your Thirst the Colonial Way, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia


There are many things we take for granted each day; like quenching our thirst. In colonial times, you just couldn't reach into your refrigerator and grab a Deer Park  or turn on the faucet and have a drink, You had to go out to the well and fetch a pail of water just to have a sip. Here, some properly costumed young ladies prepare to help the gentleman fill his pails.  That'll work up a thirst.

What a wonderful moment in time, life gathered around its source. Just before summer, a very fitting picture. Please have a nice Sunday.

I remember fetching water at my great grandparents farm. Indeed, it did make one thirsty, but oh the water did taste good!! Thanks for the memories! Cathy
