Jamestown Settlement

We've arrived at the first English colony.  Jamestown Settlement on the Godspeed!

Cook's quarters on Susan Constant.

Susan Constant, Discovery, and Godspeed.


A heavy hat.

Ball and ninepins.

1611 replica church in Jamestown Fort.

Just like Pocohontas.

Powhatan brave.

Grinding corn.

Sharpening a dear bone knife.

Working with deer bone - needles, fish hooks....

Gabe's favorite - the weapons storehouse.  We watched the musket firing demonstration just before.
It was a real treat to go to Jamestown Settlement and the Powhatan Indian Village living history museum after Gabe, Lydia, and I read aloud The Captive Princess, A Story Based on the Life of Young Pocohontas, from the Daughters of Faith Series.  We came across the book this summer at our local library, and the timing was perfect.
