From Niagara we took a flight from Buffalo Airport to Boston where we collected our car, although anxious about driving on the wrong side of the road Peter did well and we found the Toll road route 90 having paid the toll right through to West Stockbridge at the very end we then exited through the wrong gate, unable to hand in our receipt and on returning home found we had a ‘Traffic Violation’ oh well something else to brag about!! Our Hotel her was the Shaker Mill Inn a small B & B run by Bob and Mary and their beautiful little dog Annie
from here we drove around some of the most beautiful New England countryside, and witnessed the changing colours of the Fall (Autumn as we know it LOL) We also visited a Shaker village who were celebrating Halloween, and viewed some of their exhibits but always the star of the show was the colours of Nature all around us.
Eventually we were on our way to Boston and this is where the ‘FUN’ began! We had a Sat-Nav but there are so many tunnels, underpasses and bridges in Boston that it was most difficult to get around twice we saw our hotel and were whisked right passed it in the fast lane!! Well we eventually arrive and the wonderful man on reception upgraded our room to the top floor with this wonderful view of Boston. From Boston we visited The landing site of the Pilgrim Fathers, originally inhabited by Native American Indians, this is a view from the top of the church in a room where they kept the canon! we also visited a replica of the Mayflower docked in Plymouth Harbor The following day we went to Cape Cod and visited Chatham. This is a most beautiful place, but remember we are now outside the holiday season very few people around soft white sand blue sea and lagoons inhabited by sea birds, the light was absolutely perfect for photography, the weather was so warm for the end of October.
The last day was spent Whale watching, we were not so lucky with the weather! It tipped down with rain and and a gale blew and the little boat rocked this way and that, but we saw some whales, the pictures are not as good as I hoped but that’s an excuse to go back and take some more.
Thank you for accompanying me whilst I remember my holiday in the USA, if you have enjoyed it please visit again
