I’ve been absent from Jake’s Challenge the last couple of weeks, but I’m back! His topic this week is Tourist Attraction…what a great topic, Jake!

Last fall my cousin and her daughter came to visit from Colorado. They were only in Massachusetts a couple of days, but we managed to hit a couple of the big tourist attractions for my area: Plymouth (where the Pilgrims landed) and Quincy (birthplace of two U.S. Presidents).

We saw the Mayflower II, but we didn’t have time to go on the ship. It is a replica, as the original ship has been gone a long time!

On the day they left, we visited President John Adams home, Peacefield. President John Quincy Adams was born there and built a library on the grounds after his father had died. The library houses the bible made famous in the movie, “Amistad.” ┬áIt was stolen years ago and recovered in a local gym locker!
