Grey Day on Black Point

Uploaded by: McCutheon

Sunday September 29, 2013

Jamestown, VA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: An overcast day in Jamestown, VA. Black point was where the first English settlers landed upon in Jamestown, Virginia. After visiting that area today, it's hard to imagine how they made that the first settlement given how the area is mostly swamp land.

Quoting WM3050:
Great photo of a strikingly shaped cloud, nicely centered and complete. Everything below is small in comparison.
Interesting information below as well, but was the area swamp back then? Likely part of it was, I suppose. I just finished reading "Blue Highways". Beautifully written. He mentions, as he drives along the east coast, the first settlements.


Thanks for the comment and book recommendation. From what I understand, the area was indeed very swampy at the time the settlers arrived. There is more information in this short article: http://www.netplaces.com/american-history/english- french-and-dutch-influences/jamestown-settlement.h tm
