Day One

I’m finally getting around to posting pictures from the trip Tony and I took in late August. Here’s the happenings of our first day:

We flew into Hartford, Connecticut to visit with the Sharpe family. However, there was no going home to rest for us. We were on a mission to see how many states/restaurants/historical sites we could see on our 7 day trip. The states on the east coast are so small that it wasn’t too long before you’d cross a state line. We took pictures to document:

We went to the highest point in Vermont called Hogback Mountain. You could see the 3 or 4 surrounding states. It was beautiful.

There was a store at the top selling all kinds of yummy things. We tried pistachio fudge, some Vermont cheese, and bought Mason a bottle of maple syrup to go on his beloved chocolate chip pancakes. Then we just enjoyed the view.

After loading everyone back up in the car, we drove back to Boston for dinner and an evening stroll around town. Since we are such food lovers, we had to go to the Quincy Market. It is an old building converted into a row of restaurants. We looked around and settled on Ned Devine’s which was, well, divine! I LOVED my corn chowder. I’d drive all the way back just to have another bowl. Here’s some sights at night:

Fun first day. Especially considering that we didn’t even land until 1:00 or so in the afternoon. Try not to fall off the edge of your seats while you eagerly anticipate the post for Day Two.
