27th August 1995 From Portland, New Hampshire. to Raynham Centre, in the state of Massachusetts. via Beverly, Massachusetts. Basically a travelling and domestic day, 134 miles. Beverly was a ‘thickly settled’ region . Overnight at Wal-Mart, Raynham, MA .
28th Today we visited Plymouth Rock where the first pilgrims landed. THe actual rock that they are supposed to have stepped onto is protected by a roof supported by tall columns. Overlooking this is a bronze statue of the first native American to 'welcome' the Pilgrim Fathers. Also in the harbour was the Mayflower II, a replica of the ship that the pilgrim fathers arrived in. The craft had just completed a replica Atlantic crossing.
Did more fishing when we got back to Raynham, MA. Overnight at Wal-Mart again. A warm day with a pleasant warm wind.
29th From Raynham, MA. to East Wareham via Cape Cod.
Did the whole round trip of Cape Cod today. A little surprised as to how much sea we saw! Only saw one other vehicle on the cape – thought there must be a storm warning or something else we missed! At the National Park we were able to look across the ocean – Hundreds of lobster pot buoys bobbing around. We also visited the historic site south of Wellfleet, where Marconi sent his first transatlantic message to Cornwall, UK in 1901.
