As promised, pictures of Plymouth. Let me set the scene...we arrive and the sun is blazing, nary a cloud in the sky. We find a waterside restaurant with minimal lines and ask for an outside table. We get one...hurray... on the open top level deck. As soon as we are seated we realize that the sun really hot and perhaps outside in the open was a mistake...but wait..look at those clouds coming in and feel that breeze. I ate my delicious Lobster Roll while watching the clouds darken and threaten and the breeze pick up. Just when we left we felt the first drops of what promised to be a doozy and then...nothing. Some of the following pix are Bob's ( they would be the "artsy" ones) . I shut off my flash because mine were looking bleached and the result is photos that are not very sharp. No comments please, after all you don't really know me well enough to question my intellectual capacity;).
The pictures are in no particular order:
A Seaside B&B
The hill is steep, thus the tilted picture
I try to imagine how evil the persecution must have been for the Pilgrims to put their trust in a vessel like this to cross an unknown body of water.
Bob sees art, I see a serious lead paint issue, lol.
The Rock, currently undergoing some kind of restoration. As cynical as I am I find it hard to believe that we know which "rock" they landed on, but whatever one it was, they must have been very glad to see it.
Who wouldn't think it was going to storm?
Original Pilgrim Church built in 1630. It is a hike up from the water now, imagine what it was like in 1630.
Hope you enjoyed Plymouth. Melisssa at the Inspired Room is going to be doing a Drive-bys around the World post soon and this maybe a part of that post if I figure out the linking part. If you enjoyed this post check here for my driveby on the left coast.
