Our friends Glen and Darrell booked this vacation first and urged us to come along too.  Here we are in Halifax at a place called “Peggy’s Cove.”
Ate my first-ever lobster!

Island in Bar Harbor.  It was a beautiful day but our shore excursion to Cadillac Mountain got cancelled due to the US Government Shutdown.

In Boston, we walked the Freedom Trail and saw plenty of historic sites.  Here is “the cradle of liberty,” Faneuil Hall.

Boston has pianos sitting in public places, and of course I couldn’t resist playing!
