    Plymouth

    September 10, 2015 in the United Kingdom

    4:15 pm Arrived in Plymouth. Bus tour of Plymouth Hoe. Lance Boeppel and I had our pictures taken on the pier from which the Mayflower left for the new world. There is now a tablet set up by Ambassador Walter Annenberg at the spot. We saw monuments to Sir Francis Drake, the Defeat of Spanish Armada, WW2 Airmen. Drake's Island is the place where he moored after his circumnavigation of the world. Arrived at Duke of Cornwall Hotel about 5:00 pm. I walked back over to Plymouth Hoe to take photos. I got an especially good one of a little girl cutting cartwheels on the quay. This hotel is the one in which Scott stayed the night before he left on his Antarctic exploration. The dining room at the hotel is lovely, and supper was good. I had spanocopita, which came in a tomato sauce and a rich chocolate brownie. However, the next morning we ordered breakfast and it never arrived. If much of Britain's history took place on the high seas, then Plymouth is the place where the sea meets Britain.Read more
