{TAKE ME TO} Jamestown & Yorktown

take me to jamestown:yorktown

Perk of being married to a history teacher: you actually learn things while on vacation! :) Bjorn and I were able to fit in a good amount of historical sightseeing for our “Honeymoon #2” this past weekend. :) (Find the story behind our honeymoon weekends in THIS post.)

We visited Jamestown and Yorktown on Saturday, and went to Fredricksburg and 3 other battlefields on Sunday. I think Jamestown was my favorite site we toured this weekend, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed hiking around the battlefields and learning about the Civil War, too! I’m splitting this tripΒ into 2 posts so the pictures aren’t overwhelming!! We sure had a special weekend together – learning, walking around a ton, spending time outdoors…can’t get much better than that!
