Jamestown and Yorktown

On our last day in Williamsburg, it finally stopped raining so we went to Jamestown and Yorktown.  We really could have used another day because just like Colonial Williamsburg, there is so much to see.  You can learn more here
Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take any pictures of the inside displays which were very interesting.  We took a tour inside and learned so much more than we would have just looking at the displays on our own.  There was an outside one which took about 90 minutes but we didn't have the time for that one too.
These are some pics from Jamestown, replications of what was thought to be on Jamestown Island.
