The Pilgrim family
wanted to move to live a faraway country. They had heard of a brand new world on the other side of the sea
They said goodbye
to their friends who said "Good luck! Farewell." And they went on their journey in two big boats, The Mayflower and the Seedwell
They set out
from England happy. There was a lot of singing and laughter. But the Speedwell suddley sprung a leak. And started to fill with water.
As the water
gushed in. Someone said, "we're sinking, we're sinking! We'll never make it to the new world. I don't know what we were thinking!"
The Pilgrims were
very worried. But then they heard a voice. It was the Captain of the Mayflower. what he said made them rejoice.
"Do you think
I would leave you sinking? When there's room in my boat for you? Climb aboard and we'll soon be sailling, we have room for 102."
Everyone got on
board. It was quite a squeeze. For days and weeks and months. They sailed across the seas.
Storms blew and
the Mayflower was tossed on waves and foam. But the Pilgrims were determined. To get to their new home.
At last, after
66 days and nights. The pilgrims sighted land. Although it was not actually the place that they had planned.
They sailed around
for a bit more. Looking for somewhere to dock. And eventually, they settled down at a place called Plymouth Rock.
They found some
Natives living there. Who all seemed kind and good. The pilgrims were very hungry. And the Natives gave them food.
They gave them
pumpkin, corn,venison, and turkey. The Thanksgiving meal that they shared. Became a part of history.
So the Mayflower
and the Pilgrims survived their relocation. Their children's children children became a might nation.
