Plimoth Plantation Part One

The 17th-Century English Village is a re-creation of the small farming and maritime community built by the Pilgrims along the shore of Plymouth Harbor. In the Village, the year is 1627, just seven years after the arrival of Mayflower.

My friend and I weren't able to determine what this big ball o'wood was or why anyone would stack wood in this manner.

The actors were dressed in full Pilgrim costumes and even spoke Olde English.

Even here, in the midst of the 1700's we were not immune to the visiting Walmart shoppers. Really? You actually thought that you were dressed okay when you looked in the mirror this morning?

The Fort - very impressive!

A list of what one must have to make the trip from England and join the colony.

These two "kids" were very entertaining and very friendly!


  1. The pics are fun. I guess I'll add this to my places to visit list.

  2. Very interesting, and looks like you had a good time!
