Escape from the Heat, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia

While wandering one of the backstreets of Colonial Williamsburg, we came across this man sleeping on a bench in the shade of a tree.  We are in the midst of some extraordinarily hot days at or about 100 F and had repeated warnings about heat induced illness.  So, when this guy didn't move, we began to take photos from a distance using a zoom lense so we could get a close look without startling or embarassing him. Eventually, he awoke, checked his watch, and repositioned himself, and went back to his nap.  We thought the intrigue he created deserved a spot on our blog.  What a great way to escape the heat and humidity.

Once I was sleeping under the tree and that's very cozy. I can imagine this old man must be in very deep sleep.

What a great place it must be, where time and life is as such peace. With summer still in the beginning such temperatures may remain for the next few weeks over here. A great Wednesday for you.

It looks like he found the best shade for his afternoon nap!

I'm always impressed with those folks who can grab a nap wherever they lay their heads.

A chicken salad sandwich, a cool drink, and that bench, and I'd be just right...
