Sometimes, when we need some fresh air, we head to the Plymouth Waterfront in Plymouth, MA (think Pilgrims). There are tons of shops and restaurants along the waterfront and it’s an awesome place to take a walk and kill some time.
The Plymouth waterfront is only about 15 minutes from where we live, so it’s one of our favorite hangouts – especially in the summertime. Chris and I were sans kids a couple of weekends ago, and since it had happened to warm up around here (into the 40’s – whoa), we headed to the waterfront. Obviously it’s winter here in Massachusetts, so the water was mostly frozen.
Here are some shots of Plymouth Harbor:
Notice anything special in the background of this picture?
Yup, that’s the Mayflower. Actually, it’s a full-scale reproduction, called the Mayflower II. The original has long since been destroyed. In the spring/summer you can
pay a small fortune buy tickets to tour the ship. I’ve been on board a few times with the last one being November of 2012 when I chaperoned my oldest son’s field trip there.
