Took a little tour to Plymouth today for some real history. Stopped to see "Plimoth Rock" which is very small, the Mayflower II which is also very small, and then on to Plimoth Plantation. It was extremely hot and humid but that didn’t seem to bother the Pilgrims in their traditional clothing from 1620. Each person took on the character from someone on the Mayflower. These characters were very knowledgeable about everyday life in Plimoth in 1620. One hundred two Pilgrims sailed on the Mayflower and 100 arrived in Plimoth. During the next six months half of them died because they were so weak from their journey.
We walked to the shore and Pat had to dip her feet into the Atlantic. Now it is official, we have gone from coast to coast. The water isn’t as frigid as the Pacific but a bit chilly.
A blogger “Sparky” from Mary-Mia’s blog stopped by to see us! It was a real treat to meet Donna, Bob, and their dog Sparky from Mansfield.
SCVC members took a group picture in front of the Holiday Inn . This was quite a production. Hopefully we got at least one good group shot.
Did we mention that our little black coupe has an air conditioner in it? Well let me tell you that Pat is one very happy traveler, especially in this weather. All she wants to do is ride in the car.
Went out to dinner and on the way back it started to rain. This was a real eastern downpour. Vicki was following behind us in her rented explorer with both windshield wipers on high and couldn’t see. How do you think we were making out with half of a wiper? We also had to drive through rivers on the road but we did make it back to the motel. We are packed and ready to head out early tomorrow morning. It has been a great Model A convention. I have a difficult time remembering that we are only half way on our journey.
