Dove at St Mary's City Maryland
Pete was a great docent, while we visited the plantation acted by folks in the 1600's voice. Herb garden and tobacco mounds started in the spring, reminding me that tobacco was the currency of the time when the Chappelears came to the upper part of St Mary's County in the 1700's. Pete described the current economy is focused on the large Patuxent Naval Air Base. Carl, the blonde here, along with Pete gave a colorful description of how the Dove, a small boat carried passengers to the new colony.
