That’s right! And since the Mayflower was
too big to go right to shore,
the Pilgrims had to row to land
in a smaller boat. And as they approached the shore,
the rock was here to greet them and
help them take their first step in their new home.
Didn’t it hurt when the Pilgrims stepped on you?
No! I was happy to help them.
They had a long journey
and were so happy to be on land again,
and it was my job to greet them!
