to the sea!

to suffer death without the benefit of clergy
(my favorite sign in the Old North Church)

Full day of Boston tourism with my niece and sister yesterday. Today we are taking some kind of high-speed ferry to the Cape. This will be my first time going to the Cape, and will allow me to avoid giving an embarrassed "No" answer when I tell people I spent two years at Harvard and they ask me if I ever made it out to the Cape.

Of all the places we went yesterday, I think we spent the most time in the bar that served as the inspiration for "Cheers."

It is amazing how we never seem to get around to seeing touristy stuff untill guests force us to.

My parents visited us a few weeks ago and my Dad wanted to go to the JFK library for his birthday.

It also took the full two weeks before my mom finally grasped the fact that Cape Cod is a geographic area and not a town in Mass.

Well, if you went to Ptown, it's not exactly Wellfleet or Truro. But the light is beautiful down there.
