I had quite a day. We went to Zumba and had a good workout then we were off to the Swedish Colonial Days at Fort Christiana in Delaware. It is where my ancestors landed in 1639. When we arrived, the Lenape Indians were having a celebration. The various members of the tribe would recite and then they would all say, "We are the Lenape People." They greeted the Swedes when they came and had a friendly relationship with them. Erin and I visited the many booths that were at the celebration and we talked with the people. We toured the Kalmar Nyckel; the ship our ancestor came over on. Then we went and visited the Trinity Old Swedes Church.

I was a warm day, getting up into the 70's. We were tired out when we got home.
