“On the Road to the Mayflower ” is a prequel to the author’s popular presentation “In the Wake of the Mayflower” about the Pilgrim experience in America. Karen Rinaldo is a visual historian from Falmouth whose reputation has been built around historical events. Kevin Doyle is a retired combat veteran who is a writer and lecturer on historic places and events. The presentation opens with photographs of the magnificent flowers and timeless row houses that line the canals of Holland. Small craft continue to dominate Holland’s canals and a strong sense of a proud maritime heritage is on display. Religious persecution of the “Separatists” suffered in England inspired the pilgrimage to Holland before continuing their journey to “the New World.” Karen and Kevin’s research led them to “walk in the footsteps of the Pilgrims” with photographs they took of the landscape that has endured for over 700 years.
