October 23, 2008

Good morning, good afternoon and good night.

We left Woburn, Massachusetts and had an extremely weird and long ride to Plymouth. It was weird because the boys were hitting each other but then again the boys are always pretty weird. It was a brisk morning. I (Courtney) wore five tops, two pants, boots, hat, and two pairs of gloves and I was still cold. Mr. Tanaka wore a t-shirt, shorts and rubber slippers and he complained he was too hot.

The Mayflower II was a replicate of the original Mayflower. Ships back then were measured by how many one ton barrels they could carry. This ship was very large for its time and could hold 180 barrels which is 180 tons.

Plimoth Plantations was three miles away. This town was spelt with the letter i because they did not want to get it confused with Plymouth, England. It was split into two sections: the Indian village and the settler's village. The Indian village had real native people working there. One woman was making turkey soup. I (Courtney) was getting hungry. They had many animal skins in there dwellings and clothes.

At the Settler's village, many people dressed in period clothes, were working. The houses were not that big and were dark inside. At one end of the complex there was a large building. It was used as church and meeting hall. On the second floor there were cannons in case the enemy was approaching. You could see the ocean from the second floor.
