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.
