18 December 2007


I had about 3 hours in Boston!
Cruised through Cambridge:

See the Harvard sweatshirts? AND the reflection of the building across the street--unplanned but pretty neat.

The famous State House Balcony, where the Declaration of Independence was first presented.

Quincy Market

What's for lunch?

The Charles River from my seat on the Lucky Star Bus. This is the bluest river in a major city that I have ever seen.

Other sights north of Marblehead

Salem Witch Museum

Along the coast of New Hampshire (did you know New Hampshire had a coast? I didn't!)

A restaurant in New Hampshire--who knew?

Crossed the state line into Maine.

Funny story here. I was trying to take a good self-portrait and not doing very well when a man began to approach. I asked him, "Please, would you take my picture? It's my first time to Maine!" He kindly agreed, telling me that he is a native of Maine, and proceeded to point below the bridge to the boat he lived in. He told me about his work, gave me his card, and showed me how friendly...uh...Mainers? Mainians?...well, "people from Maine" can be.

Alas, his photo did not turn out at all, so this was the best I could do. =)

Marblehead, MA

My first view of the Atlantic Ocean from the Marblehead area:

This part of the country is so full of history!
Plaques on people's houses show when and for whom they were built:

The Lobster Place

My cousin's family
