Following an interesting visit to Augusta, Maine, where Ray toured a lobster facility, we headed down the coast toward Massachusetts. Drizzly rain added the appropriate ambience to our walkaround in Salem. This town holds much more history than the famous witch trials – but October is their big season. We strolled thru very pretty streets decorated with cornstalks and flowering kale to see a movie at the Salem Cinema. They had 4 shows and when we went into our movie we found a very cozy arrangements of 18 seats. something new – everywhere we go!
That night we stayed at the Boston Yacht Club on Marblehead- another fortuitous find as the hotels were all full of leaf peepers. They gave us “visiting sailors” reciprocity. It was very nice but we like Youngstown best.
Beantown, – Gael and Rich took us into Cambridge – we had a drink and “people watched” among the students – pretty cool get ups on some – Salem’s got nothin’ on the college kids! I am writing from or last stop, Gary & Ann’s. Gary is off to Africa on a project so we are missing him but Ann gave us the Paris room looking out on the lake. Greg is here to work on some major renovations so it’s been busy.
After a leaf cruise on the boat today, we’ll head for Youngstown. – looking forward to seeing Tim and our friends at home.
Thanks for traveling with us.
