We are staying at the Hanscom AFB FamCamp at the end of the flight line....we see jets, single engine, props and helicopters taking off all day long, very busy and noisy....but the location is great and the price is very good, so we get used to it. We are in a shady spot, with full hook ups for just $18 a day! We decide to stay here for a bit longer as we hope to meet up with grandson Woody while we are in Maine.
We were stationed here 25 years ago and have not been back but once in all that time, so the changes are big, but what remains the same is just as big!
Here's Paul standing outside of Orchard House, the home of the Alcott's. I had visited years ago, but Paul had not, so we took the tour, which was, again, very good. Louisa wrote Little Women while living in this house. She finished the book in three months!!! I loved reading the book as a young person, and have re-read it as an adult finding it to be a true classic in every sense of the word. Please read Little Women, if you haven't, or re-read it, you won't be sorry.
We decided to visit the Kennedy Library since we had not done that when we lived here. The building, grounds and location were quite impressive. The first thing you do is view a 15 min. movie with JFK speaking about himself, his life, his family and it was very very good.
Well....while we were in the Boston area we also......
This guy was 6'7" and made me look like a Hobbit!
We took a drive on the Mass Pike to Old Sturbridge Village and spent half a day walking around.
We had ice cream
We re-visited the Freedom trail on 2A between Lexington and Concord. We also went into Lexington, much has changed there, they even have a Panera Bread!We took tons of photos, but I won't wear you out with all we saw, just know, it was a wonderful re-visit and we had a great time. We left Hanscom headed north to Maine, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park!!!
