Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world's only daily column that wonders what it is about summer that makes us look for old, historic-y stuff. See below, Lilly Hardin of Silverthorne was recently in/on Jamestown Island, which some say is the oldest town in America - dating back to 1607.Yep, that's pretty old, but we know Santa Fe is pretty old, too, and that there's some places in Nova Scotia where Vikings lived back in the Stone Age or something (look it up). Jamestown was also, it must be said, an unequivocal disaster. Pretty much everyone died, and those who didn't, well, they died later. (Although, technically, we suppose you could say that about everyone). A scary place, for sure. Just imagine showing up with nothing but some woolen drawers and a jug of hard cider and expecting all sortsa Indian lovin' and "New World magic." "Where are all the shiny metals?" they said. "We're here to make it rich - rich we tell ya!" And then they sorta starved instead, which is a pretty raw deal if you were expecting gold and romance an' sech. (sound of Googling)OK, it seems we were thinking of the Lost Colony of Roanoke, which was almost the first permanent English settlement in the colonies - 'cept for everyone died and/or disappeared and no one has any idea what really happened. Even so, we bet life royally sucked in 1607 Jamestown, as well, and we have to say those were some hardy dudes and dudettes making a go of it.Anyway, the original point was in summertime, you're always getting dragged off to some historic place to ponder actors in tri-corner hats and breeches messing with blunderbusses and ladies in bonnets and bloomers making candles and churning butter. At least we were, as kids. And we can't help but think we'd appreciate it a lot more as adults - but now we don't have the time and when we do have the time we don't want anything to do with old-timey stuff. We want beaches and air-conditioned hotel rooms and jet skis and the like. Well, maybe not jet skis - those are kinda for tools - but you get the idea.The point is, get thee to Jamestown and watch the candle making - it's awesome. Have some birch beer or sarsaparilla while you're at it and send us a postcard!We out.
