Plimoth Plantation - Our Visit to the Native People

Today we visited part of Plimoth Plantation. We visited with the Native People. That is what we were instructed to call them. My husband absentmindedly referred to them as indians at one point in his conversation and they took great offense to it. I thought it rather ridiculous. We only saw this portion of the plantation this day because we got rained out. We did come back another day to tour the rest of the plantation. I will post more pictures of that visit later.

A beautiful plant as we walked down the steps towards the visitor's center.

This is looking toward the barn below the visitor's center at the plantation.

Visitor's Center

I loved this bench.
One of the native people's huts.

I don't remember the exact name of this, but it is a vessel of some sort with which to navigate about in the water.

Another hut.

This native person was tending the fire where they kept soup on so the people could come and eat at will.

The kettle

Their garden.

Another home that would hold quite a few people.

A native lady making a belt, I believe.


A sundial made from rocks.

An evergreen.
