After visiting the Atlantic, we headed back up the James River and took a public ferry across to the Jamestown living history settlement. Such a beautiful ride on a hot day!
Jamestown living history settlement was amazing. Our kids would have loved it, too. Visited the reconstructed buildings inside the stockade
The church. I can't even imagine sitting in pews like these for hours. Ouch!
Michael made me try on some armor. It was just too hot!
Governor's living quarters
Cook's living quarters and galley.
Ship's rudder/steering system.
Found this Indian dart and hoop game that we replicated last year when we did the Prairie Primer unit study. I had to take a picture for the kids!
Ongoing canoe project.
Wigwams. Native Americans living in the East mostly lived in permanent structures which is very different from the Native culture in the west that was mostly nomadic.
There wigwams were quite roomy.
We topped the day off with a nice fresh seafood dinner in Williamsburg, VA. We discovered that fresh Atlantic seafood is just as good as Pacific seafood!
