Mayflower Boat Anchor

This is a photo of Barbara holding the Mayflower's anchor during a visit to Plymouth, Massachusetts, in July 1999. When the Pilgrims came to Massachusetts in 1620, there were no man-made docks, so they sailed along the coast until they found a place to drop anchor. Then they had to wade, swim or row into shore. That was nearly 400 years ago. Things have changed since then.
