|This stick that my grandson is holding on to is the method by which the ship was steered, it was attached to a huge beam on the deck below which controlled the rudder|
|This was the ships primary navigational tool. What can I say, ..... way different from todays sattelite navigation|
|Some of the people were very lucky and had their own "bedroom"|
|This was the cooking fireplace which was mid deck on a wooden ship, and the fire was kept burning at all times. The families took turns cooking their own meals in this fireplace.|
|Those not as fortunate to get their own 'bedrooms" slept out in the open mid deck. Can you imagine having a baby on one of these? This did happen on the Mayflower|
This is a really interesting area to visit if you are ever here! We really enjoyed it, and it got me intrigued enough to read the book, MAYFLOWER, which gave me many new insights in to this time in the founding of our country

Then had fun going this past weekend to my other daughters house and we celebrated my grandsons birthday. Number 12. So hard to believe he is growing so fast, and he is such a total delight!
Just a little over a month from now, my oldest daughter is expecting her baby. Her second little girl, and have been really busy helping her move and get the nursery all ready for this precious little one. This is her second child, and her two girls are going to be 24 years apart. WOW! This is going to be a really big life change for her!
Hope that all of you are doing well, and going to stop in and say hello! Happy FALL!

|There was a group near us along the shore that was having a clambake, and they were kind enough to give Sam some bubbles which he so enjoyed.|
