Shannon and I are finally home and back in the groove of things after our long weekend away in Williamsburg. We had a wonderful time. Shannon's mom and stepdad had a timeshare week that the weren't going to be able to use, so we helped them out a bit and used it for them! My sister and brother-in-law came up for Saturday and Sunday, so we all went to Jamestowne and Yorktown together. It was kind of neat to be where some of America's first settlers were.
An interesting thing that I didn't know about archeology in America: contrary to the European way of doing things, in the States, apparently when they dig up stuff, they figure the best way to preserve it is to cover it back up with dirt. So, we saw a lot of bricks that had been placed in formations similar to what they found underneath. Not exactly Pompeii, but it was still cool to be there. Thanks, Sharon and Milton, for making it possible!
