We learned about the types of crops the colonists had at this time like tobacco and flax. Sissy was asked to separate the flax "threads". I had no idea that linen was made from these plants!
Peanut enjoyed the soldiers camp the most. She especially liked the Officer's tent. She discovered a large map of the area and different tools used to read the map and was caught examining it several times.
Here the girls are trying on the punishment for a soldier who was being insubordinate! They thought the idea of having to wear a sign around your neck as punishment was funny!
Since everyone was getting tired and cranky, the last couple days of our trip came at a perfect time! We drove about and hour south and stayed at a camping cabin at First Landings State Park. Our friends had been camping there their entire stay so we were able to enjoy 2 days of just lounging around and playing in the Chesapeake Bay. I'll share those photos soon!
