Today Sir Thomas, Cpt. and Mrs. Cartwright and I made our way to Fort Vancouver to see the historic sites and enjoy each other’s company. It was a lovely afternoon and we were so pleased to meet a number of the staff there and see the history. It was built just shortly after our time period and housed some amazing sites. We also learned that the British were here in the 1790’s, which was quite exciting for our group.
