Took off early afternoon with Betsy and Rick to rendezvoe with Cindy and John Esch from Dallas!
They met us at Gwynn's Island Museum which proved to be a glimpse into the past. Displays included many Indian & Colonial artifacts. There were hundreds of arrowheads. According to legend, Colonel Hugh Gwynn was exploring the Chesapeake Bay and heard cries for help near an island at the mouth of the Plankitank River. Seeing an overturned canoe, he spotted a young girl in
the water and rescued her. She was Pocahontas, the princess daughter of Chief Powhatan. In gratitude for saving her life she gave the island to Col. Gwynn. A nice story, but in actual fact,
Gywnn was given several land grants including most of the island by King James I of England.
