That was fascinating! Thanks for the link. Mr. Jamestown does have a lovely voice, doesn't he?

Awesome, Bess! I had been hoping to get to see Mr. Jamestown on film sometime. A husband to be proud of!! And, I agree with Mary... he has such a voice!

Link to video – it took 6 minutes to load on my computer

Here he is – TheMan in all his talking head glory. He's the first one - and immediately after his first appearance, there is a shot of the waterfront where we launch our own boats. Filming was done just a few weeks after he'd had a serious heart attack and when I heard they kept him hatless in the hot sun for 6 hours ... that he let them do that ... I was horrified. And he laughed at me because he always does. And I know he had fun and I think, perhaps joy is as healing as anything else. I know we really enjoy watching it and I'm still always surprised when I hear his voice coming out of the television set.

The trip we took last fall, all around the upper Chesapeake, was a fact finding mission for his last Jamestown publication. A boater's guide to John Smith's Chesapeak Bay, spiral bound and printed on waterproof paper, it's intended for the recreational boater who might wonder what it was like here, 400 years ago. It will be available for purchase in the early summer.

As for MrsJamestown and her weekend, well, I spent yesterday impersonating a slug but I got some good knitting done. This is the Cherry Tree Hill sock in a crunchy textured pattern that took me nigh on to a year to find and 6 more months to cast on. Don't you just want to scrunch your fingers in that fabric? The yarn was a birthday gift from L – so I call these Birthday Socks.
