This past week end we got permission from President Stoker to go to Plymouth and Cape Cod Massachusetts. We left Friday afternoon and went to the Hammond Castle, pictures to the left. It is in Worchester Massachusetts. It was built around 1920 by and inventor named
We than stopped and had dinner in Beverly Mass. at PF Changs. It was sooo good! It was the Pettingill's 45th anniversary so that made it extra fun.
The pictures to the left are at Plymouth. The first is of a Waganot Indian hut. They built them out of tree bark. It was interesting. The other three are of the village of Plymouth. The pilgrims came in 1620 and they really had a rough go of it. At first the Indians were friendly with them but that changed. The pilgrims brought a lot of diseases with them that killed 1/2 of the Indians. Pretty sad!
The bottom right is of Miriam and I at a local restaurant where we had fish and chips for lunch.
We then drove out to Cape Cod and then back home. We had lots of fun. We are trying to see as much of New England while the weather is good and before we go home this winter.
