Last week, Make Mine Pink had a wonderful Retreat in Williamsburg, Virginia. On a free day my roomie, Patty and I went to Jamestown to see our country's early history. There were two Museums there along with the Indian Village, Fort and docks where the 3 ships brought over the settlers. They also had a 30 min. movie of the story of John Smith and how the Indians helped the settlers survive during rough times. It was all very interesting. Everyone was dressed in period clothing and explained all of our questions. Much fun was had!

Hope you enjoyed your visit with us there.
