We visited Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II when we traveled to Massachusetts a couple of years ago, and I thought it might be nice to share a couple photos from that trip as we get celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. today.
I think many of us grew up thinking Plymouth Rock must be some huge boulder dominating the shoreline, but that isn't the case at all. The rock itself is rather small, and we really couldn't get a decent photo of it as construction and barriers obstructed any decent view of it during our visit. But I got a perfectly nice photo of this historic marker near the site!
We did get some nice photos aboard the Mayflower II, a representation of the original Mayflower and part of the area's effort to dispel some of the myths and misinformation surrounding the story of the Pilgrims, their trip to the New World, and their relationship with the Native Americans already living here at the time.
