Today In Cape Cod History – Plymouth Gets Our Sloppy Seconds

plimoth plantation – On this day in 1620, the Pilgrims ended a five-week stint anchored in the harbor of a locale later to be known as Provincetown and left to settle at present-day Plymouth across Cape Cod Bay.

Most of the country thinks that the Pilgrims first landed on Plymouth Rock. Nope. They were on The Cape for five weeks first. So yeah basically we took their New World virginity and then passed them off. Plymouth became the city of sloppy seconds.

To this day whenever Cape residents go to Plimoth Plantation you can feel the tension in the looks between them and the Pilgrims. It’s that look that only happens when you have someone’s V card. Anytime we want we could text the Pilgrims after the bars close and they will come right over, we know it, the Pilgrims know it and Plymouth knows it.

So enjoy your cute little Rock Plymouth, we have something far more important. Do you remember who the second person to climb Everest was? Me neither, but The Cape is Sir Edmund Hillary. We got there first. Cape Cod drinks your milkshake Plymouth.
