Dear Avelino , thank you for invitation to your group, all the best , Waldemar from Gdansk

Thank you very much, Bruno! I am very glad you like it! This earthwork was begun as a "fall back" fort in case the settlement at Jamestown was overrun either by the Spanish or the Native American Indians. Construction on it was abandoned in fact because the settlers discovered Jamestown had been overrun and the stores of maize devoured by the rats the English had brought with them in the holds of their own ships: evidence that we are always preparing for imaginary enemies and failing even to recognize the real ones. A tiny settlement of perhaps 300 in the New World was reduced in the one winter of 1609 to about 60 by cold, disease and starvation. And even these sixty might not have survived but for the providential arrival in 1610 of Sir George Somers' two small ships Deliverance and Patience, built after the shipwreck of his own flagship Sea Venture in the Bermudas in 1609.

Hello Paolo! A really wonderful family of statues, which testifies to the free and liberated spirit of the Parisian society! I am sure, not the local people only but tourists from every spot in the world will find this great work of art attractive and will want to have their pictures taken with it. Like always, you did a great job! Many friendly greetings from Texas! Anton Trötscher
Hello Paolo! Even though it is not April first, I fell for it! But then, I have no way of knowing since I never met one or the other. And as you may know, knowledge from movies and magazines is not reliable. But anyway, both those ladies look stunningly beautiful. I took your picture as one of my favorites. You are and remain my admired people and portrait photographer. Many friendly greetings! Anton Trötscher
