Plimoth Plantation & the Mayflower

{Plymouth Rock}

{the Mayflower}

After playing on the beach for the morning we toured Plimoth Plantation under bright blue skies. The kids loved seeing all the houses, especially after reading William's House by Ginger Howard so many times. Living history is a wonderful way to learn. It was so interesting to talk to the Pilgrims, and even more so, to have my friend Chris, a resident of Plymouth, relate to the family names and how many of those families are still in the area and have made such a big impact. We then went to the harbor and saw the Mayflower. It was fun for the kids to compare it to the Spanish El Galeon Andalucia that we saw at home in Puerto Rico.
