A few years ago, while in Southampton, England I saw a strange outline on the pavement.
It is pictured here.
Hmmm. What is this, I thought --
and then I learned that this was the 'footprint' of the size and shape of the Mayflower.
What a tiny tiny vessel. How brave those folks must have been.
Today, and every September 16, this brave event is celebrated -- as Mayflower day.
To read a very short explanation of this 'day'
and for more detailed information including a picture of the Mayflower itself, HERE'S THE LINK
