Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Plymouth, Massachusetts
"Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom."
~ John Adams(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
The first 3 Shadow Shots are of the portico that cover the Plymouth Rock. The last 2 shots are of the Plymouth Rock itself. I'm the shadow on the right, Pat's on the left.
That's Patrick's waving shadow. "Hi" Rock shadow!!
The Massachusetts Tourist Guide says the following:
Plymouth, Massachusetts, is famous because of a small and rather unimpressive boulder.
But when visitors come to Plymouth Rock, they are coming not because the rock is much to look at, but because Plymouth, as the landing place of the pilgrims, is a symbol for the ideal of religious freedom and the quest for a better life.
Patrick and I visited the Pilgrim museum and have gone on the Mayflower II tour. Our country's history may be short compared to many other country's, but it is so rich and steeped in the principles of freedom.
For more Shadow Shots you are invited to visit our hostess, Tracy, at Hey Harriet.
On this anniversary of the horrific 9/11 World Trade Center terrorist attack I ask all my fellow bloggers to say a prayer for all the victim's families. God bless you, and God bless America.
