Yesterday we set sail to new land. For supper we had salted pork, beans, and bread. But I’m not so sure this food will last to long!

We had been searching for a place to start a settlement for a day. We found a perfect hill to build houses. A creek right next to the area. For fresh water. Also a crop area not to far. Now we have what we want. This will be my last entry bye.
