One of the beaches in Plymouth
This weekend day trip was a history one to Plymouth which was where the landing of the Mayflower took place in 1620. I first found a beach and the weather was windy from the remainder of one of the many hurricanes that hit during the year further south. The waves were rough and my pictures came out in wierd colors that I don't remember. lol Up the road was the MAYFLOWER II, a replica of the original one. There were people in costume and answered questions since it was self guided. It only took about 10 minutes to go through since it's very small. A little further up the road was the PLYMOUTH ROCK MONUMENT with what's left of the original rock on display. Yes it is a small piece of rock that people at work told me it wasn't worth seeing. It's not that I didn't believe them, it's just one of those things you want to see for yourself just to say you saw it. I toured the wax museum across the street and then found a cemetery and met a girl named Jordan, also traveling alone but from California! And I thought I was far from home! We talked for about 20 minutes and she had done a cross country trip also visiting Chicago and Boston. My last stop was the National Monument to the Forefathers that was built for the Mayflowers Pilgrims. I did like Plymouth because it was a cute seaside town.
