In 1620 the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.
They felled trees and built one room homes.
After the brutal winter where almost half the colony
died they met a Native American named Squanto.
He shared with them the secrets of growing
maze, fishing, and harvesting maple syrup.
Soon food was plentiful an they began to prosper.
In 1621 they celebrated their successful
growing season with a great harvest feast.
The men where sent out to hunt water fowl.
The Native Americans hunted five deer.
Surprisingly turkey may not have been on the
menu as much as lobster might have been.
90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims
took part in the feast that lasted three days.
The Pilgrims gave thanks and counted their
blessings for their fortunate new friendship.
Much like the friendships I've made on this blog.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours
and thanks for stopping by!
