P-Town Pilgrims

I've mentioned Provincetown enough this week that I might as well do a blog post with some of the pictures I haven't posted yet about the fun day we spent there last summer.

 We were there on my birthday, woo-hoo! Provincetown is a historic place, which I love, and it's also a very liberal place, which I don't (ha ha), but I still enjoy going there. There are great shops, good places to eat, really neat historical sites, and of course fantastic views.

Me and the boys. John could barely reach the face hole 😂

We went to the museum at the Pilgrim Monument for the first time. It was a family history trip for the boys and unbeknownst to us, for the rest of us!
The Mayflower first landed at Provincetown and the Mayflower Compact was signed there before the ship went on to land (and stay) at Plymouth across the bay. 

 I love old artifacts like these. It's neat to think of the people from the past who handled these things. It's like part of them is still here with us.

The boys are descendants of three passengers on the Mayflower, including the well-known governor William Bradford. I think there may be more; I've got to do some more digging! 

Climbing to the top of the Pilgrim Monument was one of our gyms that day. 
Walking up the hill to get to it was the other one. Whew!

 So many stairs to climb to get to the top! 

We WILL join this society!


The curve of the Cape.

Back down on terra firma.

This soldier statue is actually a real person! I got punked again in P-Town!


It was a fun place to spend my birthday!
