Jamestown Island Sunset, Williamsburg, Virginia


Historic Jamestown Island, Williamsburg is one of the most beautiful spots to watch sunsets.  We have many wonderful sunset pictures from the island.  The island is the site of the first permanent English settlement in 1607.  Among those settlers was Captain John Smith - and yes, this is the land where Pocahontas lived and met John Smith. Also in this picture you can see the dark outline of the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry that runs day and night transporting people from Williamsburg to beautiful Surry, Virginia.  The drive-on ferry is a free 20 minute ride, and on a good weather day, the veiw is wonderful.

Traveling is really fun especially if you have money aside from visiting other places one can also learn a lot from traveling having experienced traveling abroad and inside our country its really quite an adventure.There are also ways to travel cheap especially if your only traveling inside the country aside from seeing the beauty of our country you are also helping the economy being out of the country right now makes appreciate more the beauty of the Virginia and its people our customs and traditions .
