Early in the morning it was time to pay some bills and stick them in the mail box in Yorktown. Coming down the hill there was cruise ship, a big sail boat, and a number of replicas of older sailboats docked in the harbor. I took this picture from my sunroof, while driving down the road. Just an idea of what was there. Not the best picture I realize, but it gives you a good idea of an early morning in our sleepy little coastal town.
In that day, Yorktown was preparing for the arrival of the French. This was a celebration of the Independence war and the help of the French with the war (La Fayette). It seems that a French Navy vessel was going to stop by that day for a ceremony and a 21 gun salute. Pity I missed it, being a working stiff and having to get going to Richmond.
