More Jamestown~The Settlement Ships

Today we went back to Jamestown, and Nathan joined us.  We had another great day there.  The weather was so much cooler, but it made walking around much more pleasant.

The Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery – re-creations of three ships that brought English colonists to Virginia in 1607 – are moored at Jamestown Settlement’s pier for visitors to explore. Visitors can learn about the four-and-a-half-month voyage from England and take part in periodic demonstrations of 17th-century piloting and navigation.
Try steering with a whipstaff or tiller, climb into a sailor’s bunk and explore the contents of a “see” chest.
