We made it across with plenty of time to spare, so we stopped at Historic Jamestowne before driving on to Yorktown. Jamestown Settlement, which we toured the day before is just a couple minutes down the road from the actual location of Historic Jamestowne, now an archaeological dig and national park. It was discovered just a few years after the museum and replicas were built at the Settlement, which is a state park. We had no idea they were two separate places with two separate admission fees before we arrived. Anyway, we decided we didn't have time for the tour, but we took the Island Drive and a short walk to the beach.
. . . isn't that fitting.
Getting a bullet removed from her shoulder.
Lots of fun, but perhaps not as meaningful as the Jamestown experience, only because we just finished learning about Jamestown and haven't yet learned about the revolutionary war. Hopefully, by the time we study the battle of Yorktown, the kids will still remember their experience here.
