Mayflower II (Plymouth, MA)

After visiting Plimoth Plantation, the next obvious destination was the Mayflower II.  The Mayflower II, an exhibit of the Plimoth Plantation, is a replica of the original Mayflower.  It is located only a few miles from Plimoth Plantation in the Frazier Memorial State Pier.

Before you board the boat, you are informed the people on the boat are still living in the 17th century.  They are not aware of cellphones, automobiles or any other modern day comforts.  There is a replica of the Mayflower Compact in the entrance to the boarding area.

Actors on the boat discuss the duties of crew members and portray people from that era.  This man reminded me of James Franco, particularly because of his dry sense of humor.

The quarters of the Mayflower were not the most comfortable.  Not exactly Carnival Cruise.

The views from the harbor were very pretty.

Meet Porsche, a service dog I saw as I was leaving the pier.

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
