Exploring Plymouth

We arrived in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Thursday evening of the 16th. We spent the time unpacking and swimming in the hotel pool.
Friday we began to explore on our own before the Faith and Freedom Tour began on Monday.

Learning history, talking and walking along together

Jennifer at the Jenney Grist Mill, the oldest mill in the United States- in Plymouth
The owner of the mill, dressed in his 1620's attire, gave us a most interesting tour and talk.

We spent the afternoon walking around Plymouth and at Burial Hill

At the grave of Adoniram Judson, famous early Baptist missionary to Burma

Reading headstones- Many stones contained beautiful verses of poetry and unique names

Before we went to dinner with the Sherman family, Nathan and Katelyn Stevens and their friend, we walked out on the rocks. Unfortunately we didn't get a picture of us at dinner.

From dinner we walked to a patriotic concert in Plymouth Memorial Hall. We were glad to hear the Singing Trooper Dan again after hearing him three years ago. Also we heard from persons taking on the character of William Bradford, Ben Franklin and Abigail Adams.
Our night ended with singing and prayer at the hotel with friends.
