We were taken to Plimoth Plantation on our first day in the Boston area. I had visited these sites several years ago, but found it enjoyable to return. The actors do not break character. They research the person whom they represent, right down to the accent. It was a pleasant day.

A view of the plantation and the Atlantic.

How Now Brown Cow? Actually, I was intrigued to learn that the animals at Plimoth Plantation are the old breeds, as true to the 1600's as they can get.

Ummm...this is a properly stacked Pilgrim pile of wood!

Some pilgrims had it a little rougher than others. This one was mixing mud/clay with his feet.

This is a view of the Eel River which is along the nature walk connecting the Wampanoag Homesite to the Colonial Village.

We visited Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II. These shots are just the little boat on the side of the Mayflower II and the lines created from all the ropes and sails. I just like lines in pictures.


  1. i'm totally jealous. i applied to work at plimoth once upon a time. didn't get accepted (i think because i was an "out of area" person--they do a LOT to train people to work there and i don't think they wanted a (most likely) one-time interpreter). some day i will go visit there.

  2. Love Boston! Even the first time when I was robbed! I see some of the same people that I saw 2 years ago are still there! Had an awesome experience in initiatory at temple working about 6 months ago. All of the women on the card were born in Lowell...and from the birthdates...they would have worked in the mills. I told Sara...she said it was a tender mercy I was the worker, cuz no one else would have made the connections!

  3. Looks like you had a marvelous time!! I love all the pictures, I sure wish I could have joined ya!!
