In the Autumn of 1997 Sandy and I went to New England on holiday. Our trip took us through New Hampshire and Vermont on our way from Maine to Niagara Falls.

We flew into Boston, rented a car and spent a couple of days touring some of the historic sights around the city. In addition to the old sections of the city which figure greatly in our nation's history.

While we were in Boston, we visited and toured Pimoth Plantation a replica site of the original Pilgrim settlement. A living museum, In the 1627 English Village section of the museum, interpreters have been trained to speak, act, and dress appropriately for the period. Here the townsfolk are eager to tell you about their recent crossing from the Old World and the hardships of their life in the New World.

We toured Mayflower II which is a replica of the original Mayflower on which the Pilgrims sailed across the Atlantic in search for a new start and freedom from religious persecution in Europe.

Also berthed in Boston Harbor is the USS Constitution, also known as Old Ironsides.


The camera equipment used on this trip was the Canon EOS 630 35mm film SLR. Lenses consisted of a Sigma 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6, Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro telephoto.
