One thought on “Way Back Wednesday”

  1. Do you have any models or representations of the “Sea Venture’, that historic ship that brought colony-saving relief to Jamestown in about 1609, while being wrecked itself on the way on Bermuda? I think I remember one from the days when I could travel about and was a docent at the Mariners’. I hope to do a program on the Sea Venture story for my fellow “inmates” at my current residence, WindsorMeade retirement community in Williamsburg.
