Fife and Drum Corps

This weekend, we are in Williamsburg, VA for Dick's daughter's graduation from the College of William and Mary.  While we were walking around the campus, we ran into these guys in their colonial costumes giving a little performance.  As an old piccolo player, I was drawn to the high pitched music.  And of course, I had my camera in hand!

What a cool way to celebrate graduation with some history from the local area mixed in.  It's a big day for the graduates and this is a great way to highlight the day.

Williamsburg is one of my favorite day trips.  It is so close that I sometimes go up there just to visit the Cheese Shop on Market square!

I love Williamsburg.  Did you go through the maze of bushes?  That is a lot of fun, but be sure someone is on the wall to direct you!

Great picture, Pat.  I'm with Jay.  I love Williamsburg.  It's one of those places I've never grown weary of, and I doubt I ever will.  Have a great time.

Good Morning Pat, One of the special pleasures of Williamsburg is that we gaurd and protect our heritage and by re-enacting our histoy we bring it back to life. Times then were hard but there was also unanimity of pride and determination to bring forth the greatest country on Gods Green Earth. Loved the photo and would have enjoyed the experience of the Drum and Fife display. I was hoping to get there in late summer but it looks like it might not happen this year.

Pat, Williamsburg is such a national treasure.  It's been years since I was there but I was also enchanted with the drum and fife corps and could probably find the photo too.  I really like that the musicians are so young.
