Afterwards we drove to Jamestown. That was a lot smaller and more interesting. This is the actual site of the first permanent English settlement in North America. And it's small! The original stockade looks like it would fit in one of my boys soccer fields, and that small space could contain the entire English presence on the continent. There were a lot of cool artifacts that they had dug up there from the settlers. There are statues of John Smith and Pocahontas. Yep, they were really here.
We drove to Philadelphia to our hotel on Chestnut Street. It is an old historic hotel. The room was very small and a little cramped. We had a king bed but was supposed to get a pull out bed for the boy the room only had a king bed. The boy got to sleep with us because there was no room to put a cot in there. It was interesting having 3 of us in the bed but we managed.
