More of New England (2)

Continuing on with our New England adventures....

School-kids and others having fun on Froggy Pond in Boston Common

The mandatory Copley square mixture of old and new.

One of NEC's "sacred" halls - this was "our" hall - largely the same as it was 20 years ago.

The old Noack - the only one 'free' today (Tuesday). I see this room now stores basses too.

On Tuesday afternoon we took a trip into the NE countryside.  Here they're all ready for the sap to run. (Perhaps a tad bit optimistic, but who am I to say?!)

This is the site of the "shot heard 'round the world" between Concord and Lexington.  The pathways were frozen SOLID ice and not another soul in sight!

That shiny glare is not liquid!  Of course the river here was frozen too.

Legend has it that a young farmer fired the first shot.

This is little girl HEAVEN!  C thought she had entered paradise!  I think our trip could have ended right here.
The next blog will be about our visit to the 1830's - Old Sturbridge Village.
