Historic Yorktown, Virginia

Although we live in Virginia, it's still exciting to discover new places we've not seen. Yorktown was one of those places. We had a native plant society conference there and got to look around quite a bit. We had stayed in towns nearby during the 6 years we've lived here, but just had not ventured into Yorktown.

We were delighted with the revitalized area they've done by the river and were surprised to discover that Yorktown is where the Revolutionary War ended. The views of the ships, water and seagulls were peaceful and very refreshing.

Neither Randal nor I consider ourselves very history-oriented, but the older we get, the more interesting it is. Maybe it's because we'll be history one day. View Yorktown photo album.
