Red 218 and Plymouth day 2

Red 218

During our few days away I actually managed to read a book (admittedly a slim one) - bill Bryson not too sure what all the fuss is about.

Hashtag Happy Reading

Day 2 in Plymouth

Our hotel in Plymouth was well located (Holiday Inn) and did a pretty good full English but not overly impressed with room cleaning (perhaps 4 in a bed has raised my  expectations to unrealisable levels?).
Walking to Mayflower museum was very interested to learn of the history of CPR (Continuous Plankton Recorder) survey and Plymouth's part in it today.

No cleaning prizes for our hotel I fear

Information about the CPR Survey

Apart from Sir Frances Drake there are many other sea stories from Plymouth.

What we found at The recently refurbished Mayflower Museum was genuinely educative and included referenced to Pocahontas (she visited Plymouth too).

Lots of stuff about the preparation and journey made by these plucky religious types - they weren't of course inhabitants of Plymouth but are forever associated with the port.
Not the Mayflower but a model of a Ship

Said to be the Plymouth embarkation point
