Herring Cove Beach. Running in the water, collecting stones in different color, watching the wave come and go. Sitting quietly on the beach, facing the Atlantic…Well, actually it’s Cape Cod Bay…and enjoying the sunset. This is probably the best way to end my day trip to Cape Cod, and a wonderful ending to Summer 2013!
Almost four hundred years ago, 102 English pilgrims came across the Atlantic and sailed to Plymouth on the continent of America with the famous ship Mayflower. The original ship doesn’t exist any more — nowadays, a full-scale reproduction sits in the Plymouth harbor quietly for tourists to visit. I guess everybody will be stunned by its size: how can 102 people live in such a small ship for such a long time! At such kind of moments, you really have to appreciate the courage and determination of these ancestors.
