Jamestown - Americas first permanent English Colony

The year 1607, 104 Englishmen and boys , sponsored by the Virginia company of London, began a settlement on the banks of the James River. There were plenty of hardships , but they endured. The replicas of the three ships that sailed from England can be boarded here.
Powhatan village and the colonist fort along with historical interpreters made for an interesting and fun visit.
Here are a few pictures of the day. I visited with my daughter and grandchild, along with my nephew Alex and sister Donna.

Pictures will enlarge when clicked on.......

Beans growing on trellis.

I think they have the wrong size gear for battle, maybe trade.
