Plymouth Rock -Pilgrim Memorial State Park {Massachusetts}

I was looking through all my pictures the other day when I ran across this one picture that I took of Plymouth Rock. It was December 1620 when the Mayflower disembarked here in Plymouth Harbor and William Bradford and the pilgrims founded a new colony in a new world. There’s been a lot of debate over the years if Plymouth Rock was the actual physical first step onto the new world, or if it is more of a symbolic representation of the landing. It has been preserved over hundreds of years as a lasting tribute to those pilgrims and was part of the first chapters of our country’s history. While it may not be a historic place that requires a lot of time and planning, actually seeing it and thinking about all it represents is a truly humbling experience.
