Colorful Couple Arriving for Coffee at Charlton's Coffeehouse, Williamsburg, Virginia







































This colorful couple arrive at R. Charlton's Coffeehouse in Colonial Williamsburg just in time for the party to which they were invited.  They will have their choice of tea, coffee, chocolate and pastries as refreshments. The coffeehouse is the newest renovation in the historic district.  Many tourists rent or bring their own time period appropriate costumes to tour Colonial Williamsburg, the largest living museum, and to take part in various activities as they would have in the 1770's; the time depicted most days.

It is great to dress up and participate in the town's past and history. It is not only fun but important to keep the traditions up as everything changes so fast. It is also lovely to see the well restored, beautiful buildings. Good on you!
