Cape Cod Day 3…. the Pilgrim Trail, Plymouth


Behind the (not so historic) grist mill? A path….




That turned out to be more historical than the building we paid to see.




It was a lovely walk….




That followed the brook.




The murals were fun.






And certainly brightened up the underpass.




The path led to a park.





And I have to admit I’ve always been a sucker for a good park.




Maybe it’s because I grew up in New Jersey where large properties are for the uber rich.






Maybe it’s because parks are always a refuge of green open space in the middle of a city.




Maybe it’s because you can tell a lot about a place by what they display in their parks….




Like this statue dedicated to the many immigrants who have flocked to our shores.




Maybe it’s because it’s just a nice place to walk your dog…




Whatever the reason, it was a nice way to approach downtown Plymouth and the harbor.




Where I’d finally get to lay eyes the most famous rock of all time…

Plymouth Rock!



Come on…

You had to know that was coming, right?

      1. I give up with the link, which was supposed to be a Youtube clip of the Cole Porter song ANYTHING GOES. Here’s the pertinent verse from the song:

        Times have changed
        And we’ve often rewound the clock
        Since the Puritans got a shock
        When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
        If today
        Any shock they would try to stem,
        ‘Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
        Plymouth Rock would land on them.
