Thanksgiving at Jamestown

I had a big elaborate post planned. I also had pies to bake, turkeys to stuff and presents to buy. In short, I ran out of time.

Let me say this:

Jamestown is one of the BEST living history museums I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. My son did not want to leave.

So without further adieu let’s celebrate the men and women who made the original Thanksgiving possible.

Replica’s of the Susan Constant, Discovery, and Godspeed which arrived in America in 1607.

The journey was no doubt arduous.

The berths so small a child could barely fit.

Upon landing they probably encountered fierce natives.

Battles ensued.

Living condition were difficult.

Food was not always appetizing.

These brave souls help shaped America.

For that reason alone the Gunn family will always be very thankful and amazed!

On a personal note, Happy Birthday to cousin Sweet T! Her mom, Nene, says that’s one bun she’s glad to have out of the oven. :)

May Thanksgiving be in your heart everyday,
