90. 邻接美国东海岸的是哪个洋?
大西洋


Explanation:
    The east coast of the United States, or the part of the United States that touches the Atlantic Ocean, is also called the Eastern Seaboard or the Atlantic Seaboard. The Eastern Seaboard is the place where the United States began. When Europeans crossed the Atlantic Ocean, they settled (or built homes and began to live) on the east coast.
    美国东部沿海地区邻接着太平洋,也叫东海岸或大西洋海岸。东海岸正是美国领土开始的地方。当年欧洲人横跨了整个大西洋,在这里定居了下来。
    Over time, many of the settlements (or new places where they built homes and lived) grew, becoming some of the large cities that are still on the Eastern Seaboard today. Other settlements failed when the people living there died or moved to other places. But one settlement is different because nobody knows what happened to it. This was the famous settlement called the Roanoke Colony; a colony is an area of land that belongs to a country (in this case, England), but is far away from it.
    随着时间的推移,许多殖民地不断扩张,成了如今仍屹立于东海岸的大城市。还有些殖民地随着人们的死亡或迁移而消失了。但有个地方很特别,没人知道它的去向。这就是著名的罗阿诺克殖民地。
    An Englishman named Walter Raleigh wanted to establish (or create) the first English colony in North America on Roanoke Island, which is now part of North Carolina. Two groups of people tried to live there, but they failed. This first time, a man named Richard Greville took a group of people to Roanoke Island and then went back to England to get supplies, which are the things that people need to survive, like food, cloth, and tools. However, his return to Roanoke Island was delayed (or happened later than the people had expected). Without these important supplies, the people who lived there decided to leave the island when they had an opportunity and went back to England.
    当时有个叫沃尔特·雷利的英国人想要在北美洲建立第一个英国殖民地,现位于北卡罗来纳州的罗阿诺克岛。曾经有两批人想要在那里定居,但是都失败了。第一次,有个叫理查德·格雷维尔的领着一批人到了罗阿诺克岛,然后又返回英国拿了些诸如食物、衣服、工具等生活必需品。然而,他回罗阿诺克岛的行程却延误了。在物资匮乏的情况下,被留在岛上的人碰到一次机会就决定离岛返回英格兰了。
    In 1587, another group was left on Roanoke Island and the leader, John White, went back to England for supplies. But he was not able to come back as quickly as he had planned, because England was at war with (or fighting with) Spain and wanted to have all the ships for that war. John wasn’t able to go back to Roanoke Island until 1590, three years after he had left. When he got there, everyone had disappeared, meaning that no one was there. Nobody knew where they had gone.
    1587年,一个叫约翰·怀特的人也带着一批人来到罗阿诺克岛,又是因为补给问题而返回英格兰。但由于那时英格兰正和西班牙开战,把所有船只都征用了,他并没有按原定计划那么快返回。直到1590年,阔别三年之后,怀特才有机会再次回到罗阿诺克岛。当他到达时,整个岛空无一人,所有人都凭空消失了,没有人知道他们的下落。
    Some people think that the colonists might have been killed or kidnapped (or taken away) by Native Americans. Other people think that they might have died in a storm while trying to go to another island. We will probably never know the true fate (or what actually happened) of the 117 people on the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island.
    有些人认为这些殖民地居民可能是被美国土著杀害或绑架了。另一些人认为他们可能是在去另一个岛的途中遇难了。我们可能再也无法得知在这座失落的岛屿上的117个移居者销声匿迹的真相了。
