Sorry, I’m a bit behind on posts, because we have been sightseeing and by the time we eat and sit down to relax, I’m pooped! Yesterday, we toured Jamestown and the Museum all about the first colonists. It was very interesting. I did not think that I knew much about the first colonists and I was right. It was definitely a learning process for me. I would not have liked to be one of them. They really, truly had a rough time of life!

Today, we went to Yorktown to learn more about the Revolutionary War. It seems so crazy that these men just stood in a line with the order to keep the line moving towards the British!! Not to break the line!! Most of the guys in the front lines were killed immediately! All I can say is “Wow”!! The bravery and courage of those people is awe-inspiring!

I have always loved the movie, “1776”, which is about the struggle that the Continental Congress went through to come up with the Declaration of Independence, which was written by Thomas Jefferson. It is a musical based on letters that Thomas wrote to his wife, Abigail, back on their plantation, and her responses.

Tomorrow, Terry and I will be going to Colonial Williamsburg. My understanding of this place is that they teach a lot of the trades they did back then, such as blacksmithing. I hope there is someone weaving on a loom. I have always been really intrigued by that craft. My favorite is glassblowing! I hope they have some of that happening too. I am really looking forward too tomorrow!!

By the way, if you are ever in Williamsburg at supper time, I highly encourage you to eat at The Jefferson on Richmond Road. It was very good food. Terry loved the Crab Cakes & my filet was delicious. Both came with 2 sides. We chose a salad and baked potato each, and rolls that you probably could throw like a baseball! LOL Our waitress was this little woman from Greece. She made me think of my grandmother! She was delightful and we tipped generously!
