Today, Thursday the 5th, was just sign-in, so I got the usual bag of handouts and a delegate's badge to wear when the actual business meeting starts on Monday. My roommate and I drove to the New Bedford Whaling Museum Library, which I had visited in 2011, in search of data to close the gaps in a couple of Mayflower supplementals in progress. No luck there but I did find 5 male ancestors who served in the local militia leading up to the War of 1812.
Below are pictures from this evening, along the Plymouth waterfront. Tourists were out en masse, eating ice cream, walking around, and enjoying the cool breeze. One waterfront photo includes the Mayflower II, one is up the hill behind you, there's a shot at the water from the portico covering Plymouth Rock, a closer view of the Mayflower II, a photo of the rock in 1855 before it was dug out and placed under the portico, the stores across the street from the Rock, then the town at night.
Tomorrow's agenda includes more research in the Whaling City, then back for some family society meetings in the afternoon and evening, plus a DNA session at 3:00.
