This area is so cool - so much to see and all accessible by free shuttle buses. It was another early morning and we were off to Jamestown.
For the uninitiated - Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement in North America,est 1607. There is an actual archeological site, where they are still discovering new things. We didn't get over there, but we explored the recreated site.
Complete with native village...
The ships that brought the settlers.
and a fort. All the interpreters are in costume - and I really feel for them in this weather!
Those are wool stockings my friends! But they were still all cheerful and informative.
A deckhand aboard the Susan Constant.
Soldier guarding the fort!
Blacksmith (always one of the coolest demonstrations)
And my favourite - the guy who took us through the armory. This man knew his stuff and obviously loves his job!
Now it's time for a shower to wash the humidity off - and see what the crazy sock machine ladies have planned for the rest of the day.
