Welcome Reid Alexander Davis! 8/13/2019 #preggotobaby #babylove #evictionnoticeOne last stop at the #Chesapeake before we head home. #babymoon2019#Jamestown is an archaeological treasure trove with over 25,000 artifacts found so far. They are still digging up thousands more. There was an old well used as a garbage dump basically, where the halberd was found in pristine condition, spared from aging by the water. They bent the top of the halberd to grab stuff back up out of the trash well! Now it’s a priceless artifact. The first skeleton was a prominent English settler and the second is a 14 year old boy who died of a gunshot wound to the leg. The bullet was still lodged in his tibia. It was a tough life there! And we topped the night off with a stroll and dinner on the York River in #Yorktown, and some beautiful views of the marina in #Norfolk at night from our hotel room.This Independence Day we visited where it all started in #Jamestown #Virginia! So incredible to walk where the first settlers who sustained their colony lived, died, suffered, and loved. Pocahontas and John Rolfe were married right here, and John Smith taught settlers how to farm tobacco here. On the darker side, this is where some of the first Africans were brought and there was famine that forced desperate settlers to resort to cannibalism. We also visited the #Yorktown battlefield where Cornwallis surrendered to the American troops in 1781. It only took about a month for that defeat and was the final nail in the coffin for thr British rule of the colonies, assuring American independence. Fascinating to walk where these soldiers slept and fought, died and triumphed in their cause (along with French allies). History is incredible to explore!Pagoda Park in #Norfolk, the view of the Elizabeth River from our hotel room, and the marina in #Portsmouth where we ate delicious fresh shrimp and crab cakes on the water.
