Day 33 - Mission: Cape Cod, MA

This morning we slept in - an actual bed, an amazing one, at the Marriott. After sleeping on an air mattress wouldn't you?
We finally crawled out and got on the road for Plymouth, MA and Cape Cod. Before leaving Boston, we drove through Cambridge to see some of the Harvard campus.
We arrived in Plymouth in the early afternoon, and stopped first at Plymouth Rock housed in this superstructure.
The actual rock is much smaller than what you would imagine. Apparently it is 2/3 smaller than it originally was. The date 1620 is etched into it - the year the Pilgrim's landed.
Relaxing at the Mayflower II exhibit.
We walked around the quaint town of Plymouth for a while before heading the small distance left to Cape Cod.
Beautiful bridges cross the canal into to Cape Cod.
Finally we arrived at our campground in Sandwich, Massachusetts.
It was a beautiful town and a beautiful state park. After we settled in and found our site, we went out on the Cape to see some lighthouses. This one in West Dennis was built in 1855. It was later converted into an Inn and restaurant.
We ate dinner at Captain Parker's Pub in West Yarmouth. Their New England Clam Chowder was delicious.
Tomorrow - more sights of Cape Cod, and probably a few more lighthouses.
