Plymouth Rock

Today was rainy and cold, so we designated it as our lazy shopping day. I still managed to get a few shots of Plymouth Rock, taken with my lovely OM-D-Lightroom pinhole camera ;-)

Plymouth is called "America's Hometown", as the "Mayflower" with the first pilgrims arrived here in 1620. It's one of the oldest cities in the States and very important to US American history.

Plymouth Rock is the traditional site of the disembarkation of the pilgrims. The rock is placed at sea level and protected from souvenir hunters by a roman portico built around it.
