Day 7 site seeing at Plymouth MA

On day 7 which was our first full day in Plymouth MA.? We slept in a bit since the drive was so long and tiring yesterday from Harrisburg.? We got up to a balmy 54 degrees outside, and Norma amazed me with another home cooked breakfast for us and it was delicious.? We washed a load of laundry as well.

MayflowerAbout 11:00 or so we decided to head out for a relaxing site seeing day.? We figured we would start with the Monument to the Forefathers which is hardly known even in this area, but is a huge and very reverent monument with a posting of verbiage on each side to reflect on the values that were the foundation to the life and faith of our founding fathers.? It is just sitting in a couple of empty lots in a neighborhood.? We met 3 very nice ladies from Cape Cod that were there when we arrived, and they were very friendly and acted shocked that we would offer to take a photo of them together.? We got to know them a little and found they are faithful believers, and they asked for prayer for our country, and we discussed our concerns for the future of this great nation.

We also wanted to see Plymouth Rock up close, and take better photos of that and the Mayflower II.?? After that we wanted to drive down to Plimoth Plantation which was a very enlightening and eye opening tour of a real life farm and village that uses techniques for cooking, farming, and living in authentic buildings like the original settlers would have used.

We ate lunch at a small restaurant named Cafe’ Nicole on the sidewalk across from Plymouth Rock, and although it was good, it wasn’t up to the standards established at Isaac’s last night.

Enjoy the photos below to see a tiny bit of what we experienced today.? If you attempt this on your next RVing adventure, or other type vacation to this area,? BRING GOOD WALKING SHOES !!!!
