I've been following with some interest the work that several contractors are doing to renovate one of the buildings in Colonial Williamsburg. On the outside, I think it's a replica of a late 17th to early 18th century house. On the inside, however, it serves as a public restroom and is getting a complete do-over. Wood framing has been removed and replaced with what I presume is aluminum replacements. And I'm sure they're also getting ready to install such pandemic to post-pandemic improvements as automatic flush toilets, exterior doors that can be opened with foot cleats, as well as probably major upgrades to the ventilation system. Simple, right? :-)

It has been months since I lasted visited Jamestown Island. So I was at first disappointed to discover that the road through the island was closed for turtle nesting season, but then relieved to find that it was still open to pedestrians and, yes, even cyclists. "Hooray!", I thought. No vehicular traffic to cope with. And, as a bonus, maybe I'd capture another photograph of some of the land turtles. No luck there, however. Wherever they were, they sure weren't on the road. Maybe they were too busy taking care of their young'uns.
