Canton, MA Planning for the day ahead: 1. May go to downtown Boston to visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum as it is free today. 2. I wanted to get up and walk somewhere as I could really do with some exercise – but then breakfast was too good to give up… So I will keep you posted on some images if any of this comes off… Well – we did drive into Boston – fairly heavy traffic all the way – unfortunately, queues around the block for the museum (we should have known better !)- so we just kept on driving and came back to Canton. Maybe a 2 hour round trip, but being driven around is such a treat – even that was enjoyable. Now back home & it is really humid , so I went for a long walk in the midday sum like any likeminded Englishman ! So hot – so sweaty – so stupid. Such a headache! Domestic architecture around here is wonderfully evocative of an America seen via the TV and from my childhood…Adam’s Family, Bewitched, even Scooby Doo !
