PLYMOUTH DAWN

THANKYOU MAINE

Tomorrow we reenter the Cape Cod Canal and so close our Maine Chapter after six and a half action packed weeks. It has been such a good time and the amazing thing is that we have only scratched the surface. As you can see from the chart we had a pretty good crack at it though - Thankyou Maine

It was built 47 years after they landed and was habited by pilgrims who sailed over in the Mayflower.

PLYMOUTH STONE

We have been tourists and have had a great day with some wonderfully interesting museums. The Mayflower is a big deal round here and they have even preserved the stone that they first stepped ashore on.

We also learnt that Night Night Sleep Tight comes from the days when you used a key to tighten up the bed ropes.
