Day 5

By Tylor Fairchild and Tyler Stortz

On the fifth day of our trip, we woke up in Williamsburg. That morning we walked around with Dave to see the Governor’s Palace. After we had the tour in the palace, we took some pictures outside in front of the Governor’s Palace. When we were done taking pictures, we walked around the Palace, and Dave told us about the flower gardens and the canal that was made by the slaves. After we got done walking through the palace, we were free to walk around the town ourselves. The first place we went to was the Gunsmith. There they made guns from scratch. They heated up a flat iron piece, took a hammer and pounded the iron around a solid rod to form the barrel. When they were done with the barrel, they ran it through a bore to make the spiral groves inside the barrel. When we got done there, we went to the Public Gaol “Jail.” We learned that the Gaol had a separate living quarter for the owner to live in. Here they could hold people in a stall for a certain amount of time, and then they were released. From there we walked through a couple of buildings like the Goldsmith and the Printing Press. Once we were done walking through those buildings, we were told to go to the gift shop. They had a lot of interesting things in the gift shops. Once everyone was done shopping, we loaded the bus and went to the William and Mary College for the buffet lunch.

At the college they had a bunch of different foods to choose from. After everyone was done eating at the William and Mary College, we loaded the bus and went to Shirley Plantation. When we arrived at Shirley Plantation, there was a tour guide waiting for us. Our tour guide’s name was Julian. He showed us around the house and explained what the buildings outside were used for; one of the buildings now is a gift shop. Today there is still one of the family’s generations that lives there, and she is getting married soon. After the tour of the plantation, we got to play Bache ball on the lawn. After the game of Bache ball, we loaded the bus and went to the hotel. We could swim for a bit, and then we had a pizza party. Once everyone was done with the pizza party, we had bed check, and the day was over.
