Day 7

Cape Cod – Plymouth – Providence

Swap addresses with new friends on the ride to Plimoth Plantation. A visit to the Plantation’s Craft Center offers a rare glimpse at the Plimoth Jacket, an ambitious project to re-create a woman’s embroidered waistcoat of the early 1600s. These 17th century garments were exclusive for women of court, the nobility and those who had achieved a certain level of wealth. Midday, we enjoy lunch on our own along the Plymouth Waterfront. You’ll say goodbye to new friends once we arrive at Providence’s T.F. Green Airport.  B
