Throwback Adventure – Yorktown Battlefield – Virginia

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In June 2009 Shadow, Buster, My Parents, My Brother, and I Adventured to Yorktown Battlefield in Yorktown, Virginia.  Yorktown Battlefield was the site of the last battle of the Revolutionary War.  This Battle occurred in 1781 when the British Army surrendered to the French, and American forces.  This Battle officially ended the War for Independence.  Yorktown Battlefield is part of the Colonial National Historic Park.

We had a historic Adventure to the Yorktown Battlefield on a sunny Virginia day.  This was one of many weekend Adventures we had on our family vacation.  My parents and brother drove from Massachusetts, while Shadow, Buster and I drove up from our home in Tampa and we met in Virginia.  This was also the first time my family met Buster, about seven months at the time, making it quite a special memory for all.

So as you probably are aware, my Throwback memory is far from clear.  However I remember enjoying our Adventure to the Yorktown Battlefield.  The Park was very dog friendly, with bright green grass, and lots of history to appreciate.  As expected, dogs were not allowed in the buildings, but we found many shady spots to relax while our family could explore the historic buildings from the inside out.  It was really a vacation where we built many cherished family memories.  So glad we were able to Adventure to the Yorktown Battlefield.

  1. Oh, oh, nostalgia alert! When my husband was in the Navy, we used to live to the north of the bridge in Urbanna and to the south of it in various cities of South Hampton Roads. We enjoyed many happy times with our daughter at the Yorktown Battlefield (and the Colonial Parkway and Jamestown Island).
