Jamestown Virginia

Discovering snippets of the USA’s history is simply fascinating. Four hundred years ago, a fleet set out from England and arrived here, at Jamestown, in 1607. Pochohontas, daughter of the Chief, helped the colonials and married one named John, establishing good relations between the Native Americans and the English. This was the second European Colony in North America. We passed the Island of Roanoke, where the first colony settled. The ships went back to England, and on their return to Roanoke three years later, the entire colony had vanished!! In later generations, some people belonging to local Native American Tribes had blue eyes!!! I love discovering history as we travel.
