Yorktown Square in Launceston, Tasmania

Taken this summer and it feels like it was just yesterday! Not looking foward to a long cold winter! Taken in Yorktown Virginia the day we went sailing and was watching this couple just sit there and how they were enjoying the summer. Wanted to increase the sharpness of the Gazebo while muting the launch,water,rocks and brush in the forground to keep the gazebo as the main subject.

Before The Day Lyrics

Last night when I was sleeping

You were watching over me

While I dreamt about tomorrow

You knew my every need

Now another day is waiting for me to make it through

There's no way that I could face it without You

 

Before the day slips away

I wanna stop and say I love you..I love you

Before the world rushes in again

I wanna stop and say there's none above You..there's none above You

I'll just be still and know that You are God

Be still and know that You are God

 

There's something about the morning

The stillness of it all

That calls my heart to hear You

When You gently call

Now another day is waiting for me to make it through and

There's no way that I could face it without You

 

Before the day slips away

I wanna stop and say I love you..I love you

Before the world rushes in again

I wanna stop and say there's none above You..there's none above You

I'll just be still and know that You are God

Be still and know that You are God

 

Here I am in your presence

Where I long to be

Alone with You in the silence

Rain down Your lvoe and mercy

Whisper softly to me

 

Before the day slips away

I wanna stop and say I love you..I love You

(sing with me)

Before the day slips away

I wanna stop and say I love you..I love You

(sing from the heart)

Before the day slips away

I wanna stop and say I love you..I love You

Before the world rushes in again

I wanna stop and say there's none above You...there's none above You

I'll just be still and know that You are God

Be still and know that You are God

Yorktown Battlefield was the site of the last major battle of the American Revolutionary War, a war that secured independence for the new United States and changed the course of world history.

 

This monument was authorized by the Continental Congress, October 29, 1781, just after the news of surrender reached Philadelphia. Actual construction began 100 years later and was completed in 1884. The original figure of Liberty atop the Victory shaft was severely damaged by lightning. A new work replaced it in 1956. The shaft of Maine granite is 84 feet in height to which Liberty adds another 14 feet

Yorktown, named for the ancient city of York in Yorkshire, Northern England, was founded in 1691 as a port for shipping tobacco to Europe.

The town is most famous as the site of the siege and subsequent surrender of General Cornwallis to General George Washington, and the French Fleet during the American Revolutionary War on October 19, 1781. Although the war would last for another year, this British defeat at Yorktown effectively ended the war. Yorktown also figured prominently in the American Civil War (1861–1865), serving as a major port to supply both northern and southern towns, depending upon who held Yorktown at the time.

Today, Yorktown is part of an important national resource known as the Historic Triangle of Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg, and is the eastern terminus of the Colonial Parkway. Yorktown is also the eastern terminus of the TransAmerica Trail, a bicycle touring route created by the Adventures Cycling Association.
