My love of history has grown over time. In high school I found it mildly interesting. In college I enjoyed it more. Living on the North Shore of Boston increased my interest in local history and traveling brought new perspectives and new interests. Cry Innocent certainly began a journey of learning history in a whole new way and tutoring it has really helped me understand history on a deeper level. Moving to Texas made me miss history. Andrew and I would drive to “historic downtowns” in little towns outside Houston and were always disappointed. We missed New England.
So returning to Massachusetts, it has been a goal to get to Plimouth Plantation, and we finally did (with our Groupon coupons).
It was a wonderful day traveling through time and many different places.
We began in a Wompanoag village
We traveled by the water
And up to a seventeenth century English village
We loved exploring the village and the houses
We then headed to the Mayflower II
And Plymouth Rock
It was a great day where we learned and laughed and really loved watching our little guy explore whole new worlds . . . with us. Good days.
