“Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.”
Ancient Indian Proverb
” In centuries past, before the coming of the European settlers, Indians from the lands later to be named Maryland and Virginia would travel many miles to a place of “roaring waters” on a mighty river. The tribes would meet at the falls, not only to honor the river spirit in ceremonies, but to trade, at this place they called “Potawomecke.” … now called Potomac” …

Never completed this thought but working on…………… The photo below is the last standing large bald cypress that top is missing from a hurricane in Dismal Swamp. There is a board walk to it.
