The Rock was engraved with 1620 in about 1888 and it is now house in a concrete gazebo just above the rock so that you look down on it. Like the Liberty Bell, it little matters if it was really even used by the Pilgrims since it is now a symbol for the beginning of the country. Pat treated us to a specialty of the area: baked quahog. It was simply delicious. Everyone just uses their favorite dressing recipe and then cuts up the clams in little bits and adds them to the dressing. Then the whole thing is put back in the shell and popped into the oven for about 40 minutes before serving. A taste tidbit fit for a king! It was time to leave Plymouth and move on towards Boston. We did a little “ short-stopping ” in South Weymouth so Pat could visit her 99-year-old Uncle Leo. He had just celebrated his birthday on September 13th!
