Williamsburg Gate Weight

A few weeks ago, I posted an image of a water well seen during a midday stroll through the historic district in Williamsburg, VA.  That same property was bordered by this algae covered fence.  While I thought the green color really added to the look of the white fence, I’m not sure that the caretakers of the historic property agree.

I was also drawn to this gate weight which allows the garden gate to swing gently closed by gravity.

I wasn’t able to find much history about these 18th century gate weights.

Can any of you gardeners or historians offer any information?

While attending a Nurse Practitioner Conference in Williamsburg, Virginia this week, I was able to take a brief walk through the historic district.  Heading back home later today.

History Preserved: Williamsburg

The majority of my time in Williamsburg was spent in meetings and seminars related to Nurse Practitioners and healthcare.  Thankfully I found one hour of time, early one morning, to walk the restored area and take some pictures.

I’m back home after an 8 day, 900 mile trip for business and pleasure around Virginia!  Thanks for following me along the way!

Day 4 – Good Morning From Williamsburg!

Almost 500 Nurse Practitioners have gathered in Williamsburg for the 2013 Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners conference.  The conference is an opportunity for learning new concepts, gaining knowledge, and advocating for improved health care for all citizens.

It is TIME for transition and change in healthcare and to move away from the territoriality that is promoted by certain healthcare providers!

For now, a few quick pictures from the Williamsburg Lodge.
