Today is Mayflower Day

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
