Several people turned out at the canal to capture a glimpse of the Mayflower II as she was escorted back to her display berth in Plymouth Harbor. This past December, the Mayflower II sailed from Plymouth Harbor to Mystic Seaport to begin what will be a multi-year repair and restoration project. The vessel should be in tip top shape just in time for the 400th anniversary celebrations which are planned for Plymouth in 2020.

The Mayflower II left Mystic Seaport on Monday, docked overnight in New Bedford and then made its way through the Cape Cod Canal, Cape Cod Bay and into Plymouth Harbor on Tuesday afternoon. I followed its progress on social media and was fortunate enough to capture it in two different locations.

Here is a photo of the Mayflower II in the canal passing under the Sagamore bridge.

This is a photo of the Mayflower II from Ellisville Harbor State Park. I recently wrote a post about this location – Ellisville Harbor State Park a Plymouth Ma Treasure. You might want to check it out for yourself!

Here is a shot of Dakota, our German Shepard getting her first glimpse of Plymouth Rock. I’m thinking she wanted to get a closer look. Maybe do a little digging if you know what I mean….
