exploring plymouth, day two

There was one thing I wanted to check out in Plymouth and that was Burial Hill Cemetery. Very old. Revolutionary soldiers. Picturesque. Naturally, I had to go. I ran by it one morning but wanted more time to explore and this morning was just that morning. Morbidity aside it was something to see. The gravestones were unlike anything I've seen before which I read was a sign of a Puritan influence... either way it was an interesting walk.

We walked along the harbor too and then went to Plymouth Bay Winery which I mean WOW. What a great tasting!!! I loved how the owner tied it into food and other mixed drinks... It was amazing. The fact that my parents had all the kids outside may have had something to do with it? We bought a few bottles (one that we will save for Thanksgiving, naturally) and some jam too that tastes like apple pie filling. So good! If you're ever in the area definitely go on in for a tasting. It's worth the $7 and then some!

We went to Sam Diego's for margaritas and lunch and we were able to sit outside under the umbrellas and just relax. That building is pretty sweet too as it's an old fire house. Slightly different than Rob's for sure. 
Not too bad for a morning in Plymouth if I say so myself. Later that day we played more in the water and kayaked and climbed trees (the kid's firsts!) and of course continued celebrating my dear Lena Girl (more on that later)! Matt was in charge of dinner that night and did a shrimp broil as well as a meal for those of us not keen on eating sea creatures.
Thanks again Ash for all the photos!

  2. Such a great insight. I love old cemeteries. I think it's because I'm a history buff and that is literally human history. Ok I'm a weirdo but definitely cool. And that winery looks fantastic and with all the fruity wines right up my alley. I think I have convinced my love that we must take a trip up north ASAP. :)

  3. I love it all!! And I love that your family travels together so many times a year! Absolutely wonderful, add that to my list of things I can't wait for when Chris is out of the Army!

  4. Hey, we like to tour old cemeteries too. There is so much history in them. These are some really cool stones. Holy wine! Which was your favorite? The Blackberry sounds delicious. A restaurant in an old fire house? How cool is that.

  5. Looks like another fun day! I would've loved to see the old cemetery too! Wine tasting followed by margaritas is definitely my kind of morning! ;)

  6. i love that cemetery!!! it's weird to say that, i feel like, but i think grave yards can be so so cool. and wow, the dates on those!! and the rest of the photos are just magical, too, of course. what a dream trip you guys had up there!!!
