Jamestown, Williamsburg & Yorktown
Claudia and I are learning how much less we know about American history than we thought we did. Each stop we make is amazing. We usually stop at each visitor center before visiting the area and watch a film that explains what went on and how the area fits in to our history. Jamestown was split into two parts with the first being a reenactment of the settlement and the story of the Indians who lived around them. After that we visited the archeological dig going on at the location of the actual settlement and were treated to a great tour by one of the archeologists. Walking around Williamsburg, we felt like we were back in 1776 and were treated to the announcement that independence had been declared. Yorktown was the biggest surprise to me. I realized how little I knew about it. I never understood how significant the Yorktown battle was to eventually winning the American Revolution. All in all, more great history. Claudia and I have really enjoyed it all but we're now ready for some relaxation on the outer banks of North Carolina. The weather is looking great. Ed

Ed and Claudia always dreamed of retiring and travelling the country in their motorhome. They retired in 2013 and this is the continuing story of their adventures on the road.
