The day before yesterday we went to a hotel because it was 106 degrees fahrenheit, and raining so we could not operate the fan in our trailer. Yesterday we visited the ruins of Jamestown and a museum there (picture group 1)
Today we went to colonial Williamsburg (more details in caption of pictures, group 2)

Hey Patrick, I'm following your blog! It's very interesting. I'm still working on the house in Jonnie Way, which leaves me pretty exhausted most of the time, just no energy to compose emails and comments. Sorry! I'll try to be more proactive! Say hi to your mom! :-)

Hey Patrick! We haven't received any posting since July 9 - what's up? We loved the pics you took of and on the ferry on the James River. It reminded us of the little ferry that crosses the Columbia River. Jealous. Very jealous! Great Grandma and Grandpa have been following your trip (via me) and are sorry that you had to endure the unusual heat wave. Hope it's gone now. How's the Outer Banks? Send pictures please!
Later gator, Nicki and Joe

Hey Happy Travelers!

Finally getting caught-up on your Blog! I love reading about your adventures, Anderson and Abigail are reading your posts too. So glad you were able to escape the heat for one night.

Something very strange happened in our area of the country this morning... it rained! I know you are most likely getting rain everyday, but so unusual for Newcastle this time of year. I hope it was enough rain to help the firefighters fighting the big fire in Placer County.

When you get back, come meet our new puppy!

Happy trails to you...happy tails to us ;)
