Boston Diary - June 6, Part 2
I loved the wildflowers beside the Old Manse.
North Bridge. It was here the "shot that was heard around the world" was fired.
You can see one of the monuments in the background.
Lunch time! It's off to the Colonial Inn in Concord.
I had the Colonial Chicken Pot Pie. It came with mashed potatoes, asparagus, carrots, and cranberry relish! Oh, the rolls they served while you were waiting were wonderful too! Yes, it was tasty! (Of course I added salt and pepper as needed.)
Downtown Concord. It's quaint and charming!
Now, it's off to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Here's Emerson's grave. (The marker was hard to read in person too!)
Louisa May Alcott's grave site.
Hawthorne's burial place.
Orchard House. This is where Louisa May Alcott lived.
Sorry about the flash glare, but it was either that or the power lines in the other picture. This one was shot through the car's windshield. This is The Wayside which was the home of the Alcotts, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Margaret Sidney at various times. The brochures says that it is the only home that Hawthorne ever owned.
We went back to the hotel where the ACL board is meeting and had dinner with them. I had soup (clow chowder - which we know is pronounced "chow-dah" around here) and a half sandwich (ham & cheese on wheat). No photos.
