thanks letís take a Pilgrim voyage.
The North Atlanticís swirling currents and changeable weather
make it a domain of stark contrast, peacefully beguiling one moment and
elementally violent the next. Even
today, it claims victims from among those who dare to cross it.
How much more forbidding was it on September 6th, 1620
