A Surprise Trip - Day 4

With Yorktown and Jamestown just a short drive from Williamsburg ...
we decided to visit these historic sites.
Shiloh loves the story of Pocahontas, so it was fun to see where she lived for a time.

I was surprised to find that very little of the original settlement remains.
There is only 1 brick tower from the original church that still stands.
They have been doing much archeological digging and have found the original burial sites for those that died during the winter.  They have also found original homes, and have marked them with elevated bricks to mark where they would have stood.














I also found a boat ride in Jamestown ... sailing down the river.
Or more like ... floating, as there wasn't much wind.

We had a nice lunch ... and then floated for a couple of hours.
It was a perfect day for a boat ride!
