On Saturday, I visited Plimoth Plantation with friends (bonus: as a Plymouth resident I get in for $5). It was the first time for my friend’s seven year old son. It’s always fun going with someone who has never been before. He had tons of questions and I was impressed with how patient and engaging the Native Americans and Pilgrims were with him.

We were told they can make a canoe in 5 days if the fire burned for 24 hours each day.
