Lori, Nick and I on the balcony of the Susan D. Constant - the ship the settlers came over on.
Just a little canoe that Nick and I widdled that morning! J/K - The settlers actually did make their canoes out of trees. They would hollow them out by burning out the insides and scraping it down with oyster shell. Clay was used to patch any holes to outside air. Pretty neat - we got to actually hollow one out that day.
It was such a great trip and I would recommend everyone go this year because of the 400th anniversary. There are a lot of really neat things going on to celebrate! We had a great time.
Sorry this was such a long post - it was such a fun filled weekend! Thanks for hanging in there with me!
