During Spring Break back in 1998 I flew to Washington, D.C. to visit my sister.  She
and Joe were living in Arlington, VA at the time and I spent the week visiting with
them and touring the sights around our Nation's Capitol.  Towards the end of the week
Kristine and I took a roadtrip down to Williamsburg and Jamestown, VA.  These are
some old photos from that trip that I recently scanned in...  hope you enjoy them!

Williamsburg was the capitol of Virginia from 1699 to 1760, back
when this country and its ideals of government were forming.  It is
now preserved as a living history city and it's a fun place to explore.

Jamestown was the first permanent English Colony in North America.  It is
where the true story of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas took place.
