Day 15 – Intrepid Women, The Mayflower and A Pig in Boston

15 Oct

Leaving Cape Cod for Boston today, we broke our journey in Plymouth and discovered a statue of The Pilgrim Maiden, symbolic of the ‘intrepid English women’ who made that first journey to these shores.

In the harbour in Plymouth was a replica of TheMayflower. I can’t imagine how scary the journey must have been.

A beautifully trained pig was walking the streets of Boston as we went in search of Barnes and Noble Bookshop. She came to order, crossed the road as told and stopped to chat when asked to.

    As an American who went to school outside of Boston, it was interesting to visit Plymouth, England, and see the plaque there.

    I’ve often thought that “The Mayflower” voyage must have been treacherous. It wasn’t a very good ship. I mean, it proved sturdy enough at the end of the day, but still — LOL! I love the maiden statue — far more interesting than a rock any day!

    I on’t “get” pet pigs. Of course I wouldn’t keep a bird, either. I guess pigs are quieter than birds. That’s something, anyway.

      It must have taken great courage and determination to get on that boat! Thanks for calling in and taking the time to comment. 🙂
