Residential Development Will Replace Spotswood Golf Course

Interesting news! Colonial Williamsburg president Cliff Fleet has announced that the Spotswood par-3 golf course, part of the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, will be developed into a residential neighborhood in close proximity to Merchants Square, the College of Williams & Mary and other downtown Williamsburg amenities. That will leave the Golden Horseshoe with two highly regarded 18-hole golf courses, the Green and the Gold. In an email to Golden Horseshoe members, Fleet said the nine-hole Spotswood course "has been underutilized for many years,” and that its land would be redeveloped “into a high-quality, walkable” neighborhood that will sit adjacent the Williamsburg Inn and the Golden Horseshoe club. No timeframe was announced for the project, which Fleet wrote is in the very early stages of planning. Fleet said Colonial Williamsburg believes “this initiative will significantly enhance Williamsburg as both a destination and a community.” Thoughts?

Lighthouse Trippin









What a great weekend. The girls and I headed out after Sage completed her tryouts for the cheer squad at Berkeley. She MADE it!! We picked up a quick bite to eat from Chick-Fil-A and headed to the beach. We arrived around nine o'clock and enjoyed the back deck with my parent-in-laws. Drank some wine and headed in to bed.

The next morning Susan and I headed out with the girls to check out Bodie Island. We haven't been there in years. Since we returned, you can now climb the lighthouse. We were short on time so we didn't sign up to climb it. They have also repainted it and added a nice walkway out over the marsh areas where you can see Blue Crab, Herons and fish swim in their habitat. Watch out for the snakes though! 

Here are a couple of shots from this magnificent Lighthouse.
