The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Plymouth, Massachusetts where one of my ancestors landed 400 years ago in 1620. George Soule was one of the passengers of the Mayflower.
The route starts in Rhode Island and goes through Massachusetts.
I would like to actually go to Plymouth some day and visit the sites I am visiting virtually.
Here is a picture from Google Maps Street View of Plymouth Rock. There is an interesting story about why this rock is not very big now. Was it the place where the passengers of the Mayflower stepped ashore? All that is really known for sure is that it was in this general area.
There were plans for major celebrations in Plymouth on November 21, but most of them had to be cancelled due to Covid-19.
You may see different dates for the landing of the Mayflower passengers at Plymouth Rock. Because the landing happened before the Gregorian Calendar was introduced you may see an earlier date mentioned.
Now to determine what the future route of the Virtual Hike will be. I am thinking of heading north, but not sure yet how far north.
