Photographer's Note

My previous upload was related to Portuguese explorers of the 1500's. This memorial tells about event roughly 100 years later on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.
This shot has no photographic merits, but I suspect not many know about this piece of history, so I decided to upload this anyway.
In 1609 a company of Englishmen had a stop of six days in Nevis before continuing to Virginia to establish the first permanent British settlement beyond the British Isles. And the rest is history.
