First we walked around the visitor's center and saw the videotape about the settlement, plus we looked at the display about the Lost Colony drama which is put on in the summer. Apparently Andy Griffith was in it when he was young, and we were told that he is coming back here on Friday to do the lighting of the Xmas tree and perform.

After that, we walked out to the 'fort' which is a puny thing - smaller than Fort Necessity!! And THAT was SMALL. Bob doesn't believe that it is the real fort - it isn't big enough to have even a small group of people in it. Fort Necessity at least had room for some buildings.
