We camped at Naval Weapons Station Yorktown Cheatham Annex while visiting nearby Jamestown National Historic Site.
Apparently early on, the name of the settlement was spelled with an “E” at the end – Jamestowne. Exploring Jamestowne, was inspirational, it’s the first permanent English colony in America, established in 1607.
Take a look at the road from Virginia Beach to the Cheatham Annex and then on to Jamestowne…
Jamestown stands as a testament to the hardships and sacrifices our forefathers endured to establish an English colony in what is now this great nation of America.
Jamestown is inspirational, evoking emotions of pride and wonder of how the colonists left the comfort and security of their homes in England to travel so far across a vast ocean to an unknown wilderness and faced great dangers to establish a permanent settlement here – an awesome adventure!
If you’ve never been to Jamestown, I encourage you to add it to your list of places to see before you leave this world…
