Happy Thursday! It feels like forever since I've been to this space, and that's because we've been gone on a trip to Boston and Cape Cod for the last eight days. It was a wonderful trip, with time spent in the city with some very special people, and also time out on the Cape for just Mike and me.
We enjoyed riding the subway, the "T," and exploring the city. The T has some great helpers! We just looked for their red shirts.
One of my favorite places was the Boston Common and Public Garden. So pretty there, lots of green and flowers, and we rode the swan boats!
I'm saving the best flower picture for my Saturday post -
it has some great color that the RSC quilters will love.
This is part of the Navy group and wives who were together the first four days. We visited the USS Constitution, which was perfect for a bunch of sailors! The Constitution is the world's oldest ship of any kind still afloat. She was commissioned by George Washington, and built in the late 1790s. She is a museum ship now, but still has a crew of 75 Navy sailors, who our guys enjoyed talking to.
After our time in the city with the group, we rented a car and took off for Cape Cod. I've really enjoyed exploring the Cape Cod National Seashore areas where there are beaches to walk, marshes to hike, and lots of wildflowers. We even visited a winery, but I just realized I haven't downloaded that photo from Mike's camera yet.
Lilies of the Valley growing wild - a whole grove of them!
Now that we're home, there's lots to do - laundry, groceries, and spend some time with my mom are top of the list. But I do hope to have a chance to visit and catch up with my "I Like Thursday" friends at Not Afraid of Color
. Have a great day!
