Entry 1!

February 9, 1630

That was a brutal winter all right! We were living off of little bits of food. This was unexpected because my fellow colonist had brought what they thought would be an adequate amount of food, yet it came out to be inadequate. I am one of the lucky ones. I am a survivor. There are not many of us because the cold and lack of food caused plague among many of our members. Even I am as skinny as a twig. I cannot believe I was a survivor. I am very happy to be alive on this very day. And although people are losing their sea legs as I speak, I think we have a chance of being a great colony some day.


  1. I'm glad that you have survived so far. What have you been eating since the food is running out? Are you catching fish or other food?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

  2. Well, the drinking water went bad, so every one, including the children, have to drink beer. As far as other things go you'll have to wait and see!
