On The Road Again...Monday 10/04/10... Started the day with 7:30 am Mass followed by breakfast. After breakfast we took a walk down to the Kingston Bay. Met with our friend and tour guide, Fr Tom and after lunch took a local tour of Duxbury. Very interesting. Some of the houses date back to the 1700's.

|Labyrinth..interesting to walk|
Saw where the homestead of Miles Standish was. Visited the oldest maintained cemetery in the U. S. where the graves of John Alden and his family are. There is also a marker saying this is where the first church was.

Visited the Cape Cod Canal, this allows ships to get into Long Island Sound in a shorter and safer distance. We rode around Plymouth, visited Plymouth Rock and went on the Mayflower II. Interesting to talk to the role players. They would speak in character of those who traveled the ship in 1620. Tom knew a story about a passenger of the Mayflower by the name of John Billington and asked the role player. She responded, I can't talk about that. It was drizzly during the day but when on the Mayflower II it started to RAIN. Had a wonderful dinner at Isaacs restaurant. 65 miles.
