Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
We went down for the weekend to historic Williamsburg, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the settlement of the Jamestown colony. I'll stop by and update this with the official story of Jamestown, and its significance in early Virginian life (some of which you may not know) sometime in the near future, but for now, here are my photos from the parts of the celebration we went to, on Jamestown Island itself. (We didn't make it to Anniversary Park to see the concerts, but from the schedules I read, it was mostly politically-correct claptrap anyway. I'll take history over celebrities any day!)
Here's how the real
professionals captured these festivities. That's what makes them professionals
. Or something like that...
Hey, we saw these guys:
We caught a glimpse of these guys as we were driving off the island. I wish I had seen them earlier, so I could've presented my own report to you, but alas, it wasn't meant to be. For the record, there were two "First Amendment Areas" set up for protesters to harangue the crowd from. Fortunately for us, the only one that was "occupied" (pardon my pun) was the one that was far away.
We were amongst a full schoolbus-load of people, and I didn't hear a single positive
comment about the disruption or their message. That's good news, right?
