Plimouth Plantation - doing the touristy thing

These are some photos from back in Massachusetts, I thought I had posted them but must have forgotten. Or,I'm posting them twice...if so, forgive a woman who has lost her mind.  I've already posted Photoshop Friday on Thursday this week, so it kind of shows where my mind has gone.

Left Brain and I headed over to the Plimouth Plantation for some tourist activity.  I've been here before, but loved it so much I wanted to go see it again.

our first glimpse of the village

the bed belonged to the parents in this house and has feathers in the mattress.  The striped pad on the left is the bed for their two sons and is stuffed with straw and placed on the floor at night

the bed curtains help to hold in the heat during those cold winter nights

such a sweet little cradle

I loved this little corner in this house.

This house was quite a bit larger and much more spacious

I found the wood pile very interesting with its circular pattern.

It is the job of the children to learn where the chickens are laying eggs and to gather them.

The costumed guides remain in full character during the entire conversation and represent a person who had lived there during the 1600's.

This was in the visitor center and entitled the MooFlower.

I loved the huge sunflowers they had planted in the gardens.

It is always fun to literally "step into history" as you enter the gates and see everything that has been constructed in the manner it was done back in those days.

Long Live the Queen of Plimouth Plantation

  1. I love your photos from the Plantation. It's been a while since I've been there, and it was so nice to have another walk through. My ancestors came over on the Mayflower and would have lived in settlements like this. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
