Good day, pleasant readers! This is Marie-Grace. As we promised, I am giving an update on what we did on our trip. I am sorry it is late, but we (all except Father and Jewel) have been rather sick, and are just getting over it.
On the first day (October 20) we drove for half the day and reached this lovely house. We took this picture the next morning.
|The next night we reached this house in Lexington, KY. This was my favorite house that we stayed in on our trip.|
An interesting fact: I learned while we were here that Lexington is the World's horse capitol or something of that sort and for that reason, the Queen of England keeps many of her horses here. This is one of the pens that is behind their house. The horses were not out at the time, which highly disappointed Libby, who would have loved to say the she had seen the Queen of England's horses!
That night, we reached the house of one of Mother's old friends who lived in Gloucester, Virginia. She did have two girls who became our friends, but they asked not to put any pictures of them on our blog. That night we stayed up talking until nearly midnight. The next day we went to the Nauticus museum and the battleship Wisconsin. Unforgettably, our camera died the minute we reached the museum. Our father took this picture of the battleship. If you want to find out more about this museum, you can go to their website. we have provided a link HERE.
The next day, we went to James town and Historic Jamestowne. I will explain the pictures starting from the picture in the upper left-hand corner and going counterclockwise. 1; This is the famous statue of John Smith at Historic Jamestowne. 2; A man dressed up at the weaponry in Jamestown settlement. 3: Myself scraping at a deer hide in the Indian village at Jamestown settlement. 4: A guard outside James fort. 5: Myself on board of one of the three ship replicas at Jamestown settlement. 6: A costumed man in James fort. 7: The inside of one of the Indian lodges. 8: Myself at the Indian village. 9: Libby sitting in one of the chairs in the officers house at James fort making a statement. 10: A cannon in James fort.
