We're back...

And wow, what a trip! Of course, I'll have pictures (I'm working on them as I write this), but some highlights include these:

1. Experiencing a nor'easter
2. Flying back during tornado warnings, hail, and lightning (though it was very smooth, other than the tornado sirens which woke me after midnight)
3. Boston and U.S. history around every corner
4. Culinary delights (especially for DH, who loves lobster -- and us, with Mike's Pastry and canolis --yum!)
5. Ferry rides and the T
6. Museums (it rained and was cold for most of our stay)
7. Life on the east coast (we stayed in Hull, right on the bay)
8. Grey and stormy water

All in all, it was an amazing time, and we all loved it! :)

How did your June begin?

Heh ... wasn't much of a nor'easter ;o)

I was thinking how awful the weather was ... cold, wet, and draery.. during your visit.

June started with http://heritagemuseumsandgardens.org/exhibitions/current-exhibitions/norman-rockwell-beyond-the-easel/

WEll, we don't have much to compare it to...and the water was definitely surging over the seawall (ha).

It was pretty dreary, but we managed to have fun anyway :)

It sounds great. :)

My June so far has just been hectic. My husband has been travelling for work and the end-of-the-school-year-crazy has begun. *exhausted*

The end-of-school-year-crazy just about kills me every year...I'm looking forward to a little recoup time (and I hope you get some too)!

Boston is the first truly historic city I've been to...and it was definitely cool!
