The Travels of Johnny Thunder

Hello, Johnny Thunder here. Welcome to my travel journal. You may have seen me and my friends in some of our other adventures. From Egypt to Asia; from the Lost World to the Amazon; we've been everywhere. Now, however, I would like to extend an invitation to join me on a tour through the real world. Check back here for pictures from my latest travels... -JT

East Coast

From Washington, Pippin and I continued east to the Atlantic Ocean. We toured Yorktown, Virginia, site of the British surrender in 1781. Historical reinacters were firing a cannon, a replica of those surrendered by the British (that's one of the actual surrendered cannons, in the picture above). We also visited Jamestown, Virginia, site of the first permanent settlement in North America.

After leaving Virginia, we turned south, onto North Carolina's barrier islands. While touring the islands, we visited Kitty Hawk, site of the Wright Brothers' first flight. Those white stones mark the landing spot of each of the first four flights. And we saw a lot of lighthouses, including the famous Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.

Happy Travels!
