|Cape Henry Light House |
The road was calling us to see what’s beyond the sand dunes. I wanted to head north and west towards Gettysburg and stop at what ever aroused our curiosity. The first thing on the map was Fort Story. It had the oldest building commissioned by the government of the United States. It happened to be a lighthouse. The history here doesn’t go back to the Civil War, but the War of Independence. A big Naval battle took place here involving the French Armada and the British Fleet.
|St Bede in Williamsburg, VA|
Tonight after selecting our camp site we made it over to St Bede Church for mass. What a church! It is modeled after a Greek Orthodox Church that we visited in Saco, ME. It has a large Atrium that leads you into the larger circular main part of the church.
Later this evening, we settled into our campsite. I setup the BBQ and we celebrated with a nice T-bone steak. Life is rough on the trail!
That is what we did and saw!
