Don & Sandi at "home", back in the Stockton area.

Monday, September 20, 2010



First, a shock absorber update...we actually had both shock absorbers replaced on the front of the motor home at a truck/RV repair shop, just "coincidentally" less than two miles from our campsite.  We were on the road by 1:00pm on Monday.   Yippee!

Now, about Boston...what a beautiful city!  We took the "Bean Town Trolley" for a 2-hour around-the-town tour to start our day on Sunday.  We then visited the North Church where, back in 1775, two lanterns were lit and displayed in the belfry to advise Paul Revere that the British were moving "by sea" (one if by land, two if by sea).   Mr. Revere then galloped off on his famous midnight ride.  We didn't go into the church because there was an actual church service being held when we arrived...and one of us wasn't dressed for church (Don!).

We then visited Paul Revere's house just a couple of blocks from the North Church.  We then hiked over the bridge to see the oldest commissioned floating warship in the world, the USS Constitution.  She is a spectacular and beautiful ship.  She is also called "Old Ironsides" (as you may or may not recall, cannonballs fired by an enemy British frigate during the War of 1812 just bounced off her wooden sides).

We then returned to the harbor area and took a 45-minute harbor tour on one of the ferry boats.  We then had a lovely dinner near the harbor...and headed "home" to the RV.   We were exhausted.

We are in a campground in Connecticut and we will head to New York, NY tomorrow for a few days.

Take care.
Don & Sandi
