After spending three days doing pre-planned activities in Boston, Salem, and Plymouth, I gave myself one day to just walk around without an agenda.
Of course, my feet happened to pull me into several bookstores. Once inside, they always yanked me to the teen sections where my eyes made me look for a certain book. And wouldn't you know it, I also had a Sharpie in my pocket to sign them!
I listened to a cool cover-band play in front of Faneuil Hall. I watched some breakdancers. And have you seen those people who give away free hugs? Every-so-often they show up at Farmer's Market back home, and I've seen them a few other places. I always thought it was a cool idea, and the huggers were usually so happy and sincere about the offer. So today I thought, "Why not!"
Yep. Free hugs are nice.
Then, since I still had a couple of hours to waste in Boston, I did what Bostonians do and went to see a movie. Brüno was hilarious!
At my home, we don't own a TV (which wasn't as hard to get used to as I feared). But when I travel and stay in hotels, the hour or so before bed is always something I look forward to. Here's how I spent tonight's dinner...
What was in that white box? Something yummy...
It was one of the best cupcakes I'd ever had! I even gave Snoopy, who's been my recent travel companion, a chocolate chip. But just one! Chocolate isn't good for dogs.
See ya back in California!
