So continuing on from my discussion last week...Boston field trip, nor-easter. Another stop on our tour of history was Plymouth Rock. This symbolic monument to the landing of the Mayflower and Pilgrims is right on the water, and with winds so fierce we could barely walk, we scurried off the bus, snapped a picture, then ran back to the bus.
Still, our guide did inform us that this is more a symbol than the actual rock that the Pilgrims hit coming into shore. There was no written reference of any such rock until 121 years after the fact! I guess there were a lot of claims made, but who knows? Anyway, it is old, it looks important, and it is stamped with the year 1620. We braved the weather and saw it. That is good enough for me.
