Plymouth Rock


We had one of the first warm weathers over the weekend and therefore took a day trip to see one of the most famous ‘Rock’ in New England - possibly even considered to be the most important symbol in the American History too .

1 hour drive south from Boston in a small town called Plymouth lies this rock - The Plymouth Rock.
It is said that in 1620 the first European settlers called the Pilgrims first stepped into the new world and was directly on this Rock.

The history and the stories behind the rock is impressive, and in comparison the actual Rock was quite the opposite – it was just a small rock engraved ‘1620’ and had a large crack running down the middle with concrete used to glue the 2 halves together.
As I sketched the Rock, I overheard many spectators say “Is this it?” or just looked at it and walk away quietly with a look of disappointment on their faces.

Anyway, it was a fun trip, admission is free and it’s nice to be able to say that I saw it (sketched it)!

Yeah, kind of a disappointing rock. But sounds like a nice trip.
