After a short night in the hotel, we picked up our rental car and headed into Boston. On our way to my aunt and uncle's house in Boxford, we decided to play tourist, for just a little while, as the weather was amazing!
We had a delicious lunch, at an Italian restaurant, jaunted through Paul Revere's house, took a short walk along the Freedom Trail path, grabbed a rustic loaf of bread, and a bottle of wine and headed north!
The day was lovely, and the temperature was perfect; not what we had expected, yet So very welcome!
We weren't in the city long, but it was so worth the stop. We both love the quaintness and charm of old cities, and the history that has been preserved, in so many ways. I am looking forward to spending a bit more time in Boston, at the end of our trip.
It didn't take long to arrive at my favorite place on the planet; my aunt and uncle's home! Not only are the people living there fabulous, the tree canopied road and red house, make my heart sing; it was just as I remembered it, from my last trip, many, many, years ago!
We have been promising/threatening to visit them for ages, and I am so glad to have finally made good on our word. Being there with them just feels like coming home. The peace and calm that I find in their home is like no other.
And just when I thought life could not get any better, I hear a familiar voice; my most awesome cousin drove down from Maine, just to see us!! And in typical "Kathy" fashion, she did not come empty-handed, she brought two homemade pies, and lobster appetizers; a taste of Maine!
Sitting on the screened in porch, we all enjoyed visiting, eating and relaxing. We even had the good fortune to hear an owl Whooo, Whooooo in the woods. I am so grateful to be here and so grateful to have this valuable time to spend with family.
