Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

The Ladies Are Off Again

I had things to do today so the ladies took a ride to the Cape Cod Canal. Along the way they stopped to check out the Buddhist Temple along the way. When completed, this will be the largest Buddhist Temple outside of Thailand. This temple is being built in honor of the king of Thailand who was born in Cambridge Ma. while his father attended Harvard.
 Once at the Cape, they stopped at the famous railroad bridge along the canal.
 I have never seen the bridge in it's lowered position.
 Stephanie standing at the shore line of the canal with the Bourne Bridge in the background.
 I never realized there was a memorial erected to men that lost their life during WWII while serving aboard a sub.
 Stephanie at the start of the canal as it open to the ocean.
 There is a store at the approach to the Bourne Bridge that has this neat windmill.
La Salette Shrine started it's festival of lights Thanksgiving night. The girls went to check it out.
 S is for Stephanie
 Megan doesn't mind the cold, she's our grand daughter that lives here.

 Stephanie enjoying the displays.
 This is Clopper, he looked lonesome.
 Joyce looks like a bear with all the coats she has on.

 This year they Shrine changed to LED's to help lower their electric bill.
 Hard to get a good picture of all the lights.
Time to head home for the night.

Happy Thanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving and whereas we are in Ma. I guess it's only appropriate that I find a Pilgrim Thanksgiving poem. Not matter what problems or worries may plague us, we can always find a reason to be thankful if we take the time to look into ourselves.


The Pilgrims Came
by Annette Wynne
The Pilgrims came across the sea,
And never thought of you and me;
And yet it's very strange the way
We think of them Thanksgiving day.
We tell their story, old and true
Of how they sailed across the blue,
And found a new land to be free
And built their homes quite near the sea.
Every child knows well the tale
Of how they bravely turned the sail
And journeyed many a day and night,
To worship God as they thought right.

Storm Has Passed Us

The "Big" storm has passed us without any damage. So today is a lounge day for some of us.
If you look at the neighbors driveway, you can see the flooding. We only lost reception on our Dish when the wind moved it.

The Start Of Another Chilly Day

19 degrees at 8:00 AM, ah nothing like the crisp fresh morning air.
 But...not all of us were ready to get up. Yup....Casey is sleeping with the house guest.
 A late start (11:00 AM ) but we are on our way to Plymouth. We stopped on the way to see some of the cranberry bogs.
 Plymouth is only about an hour away so it was a short ride.
 We usually park at the pier where the Harbor Master is located.
There's a fish market on the pier that also has a restaurant where you can get fresh seafood.
 Stephanie had chicken for lunch??????
 Picturesque area.
 Plymouth Bay
 Kids had to play in the snow!
 Clicking on the picture will enlarge it.
 The Mayflower II is docked here in Plymouth and the ladies went in for the tour.
 That's them walking up the ramp
 And on their way out.
 A short walk away, is Plymouth Rock.
 There it is....just a rock!
 Some info on the rock.
 There are some really beautiful homes in this area.
 No.....we didn't let her go in the bar.
 We have some stormy weather coming tomorrow so not sure what we are doing. We'll see!

A Day In Bean Town For The Girls

The girls braved the cold today to take Stephanie to Boston. While she's here we will be showing her some of the historic sites in the area.
 Stephanie's first train ride.
 Just arrived at South station in Boston
 Then a walk to Faneuil Hall
 Also had to stop at Quincy Market for lunch
 Lots to choose from in Quincy Market.
 And everyone has to stop at Dicks Last Resort, kind of a crazy place to eat at.
More shops, inside and out.
 Lots of cool stuff
 I really like this hat.
 Actually, this one makes your nose look smaller!
 Enough shopping!
 Back to the train station.....man it's cold!
 Ah...warmth in the train.
 Might as well get comfy for the ride home.
Another cold day tomorrow, wonder where we will be going????
