June 6-11

Hosted by Charles & Mearle O’Brien

Arriving in Williamsburg on Tuesday provided a couple days of relaxation and visitation.

Thursday we set off for Norfolk to tour the Norfolk Naval Base, going past piers, through the Naval Air Station and past historic homes built for the 1907 Jamestown Exposition on “Admiral’s Row” which now house the flag officers.  We then boarded the USS Ponce.  Lunch was held at the Officers’ Club on base, then off to ride through Norfolk’s beautiful historic district.  Some of the views were of homes along the Hague, the Chrysler Museum, old St. Paul’s Church, the Moses Myers House, the restored waterfront and many other points of interest as well as a visit to the Douglas MacArthur Memorial for a review of history.  MacArthur is buried in the rotunda of the memorial.

Friday was a trip to Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown.  Costumed interpreters were guides to the past as the group visited the recreated village of Jamestown Settlement including replicas of the three ships that arrived at Jamestown in 1607 as well as replicas of the Powhatan Indian Village and the James Fort.  Yorktown Victory Center provided exhibits relating to the Battle of Yorktown.  Voices recounted major events from the American Revolution and there was recreated 18th century farm and the Continental Army Encampment.  We drove through the village of Yorktown and past the Revolutionary War Battlefields.  Lunch was again at an Officers’ Club on the Coast Guard Base in Yorktown.

Saturday was the Annual Business Meeting and the banquet.
