A Breath of Fresh Air

After a rainy, stormy night, I awoke today to a typical cool fall morning. Last week, October showed up and it was still in the mid 80's. It made for a wonderful time in  Historic Jamestowne. This is the actual site of the original colony. It is a good thing we visited on this day, because the government shut-down closed this park the very next day. The sun was dancing through the trees, the skies were painted with thin white clouds, a nice breeze would blow and swirl around us every now and then. I truly believe we were outside more than indoors that whole week. Breathing in the air, the change in routine, the company, all made my stress melt away. I felt a calm and a laid-backness wash over me and it was good.

I tried experimenting with some black and white shots with the camera. One day, I will learn how to use my camera. One day, I will not have all these little ones always needing me. Then I will be sad that they are not always needing me, but right at this very moment, I would love to have one complete thought. Yup, I would.


  1. Were some of those shots out on the actual island of the original settlement? Last time we were there, it wasn't open yet, so we just went to the village and toured the ships. I would love to take the little kids back there someday.

    1. Yes, these were all from the original settlement site. All except the last picture in black and white. That was in Williamsburg. I hope you get the chance to go!
