I have had such a good time with Kym these last few days. I knew I would – we’d spend time together a few years ago at Margene’s – but it’s been even better than I thought it would be. We have talked and talked – in fact, she’s probably heard way more about my life and my family than she ever wanted – and we’ve really gotten to know each other.
Here are the highlights of the things we’ve done – nothing terribly exciting but very Massachusetts-in-autumn, if you will.
We took a drive to Plymouth. On the way we saw a few cranberry bogs being harvested. It’s always great when someone visiting can experience this and for me, well, it never gets old.
While in Plymouth we saw The Mayflower and, of course, the iconic Plymouth Rock. There’s nothing quite like showing off that little gem.
We also had a delicious lunch at The Blue Eyed Crab. The pear and cilantro margaritas are fantastic.
Yesterday we pretty much hung out at my house. I had more ambitious ideas for the day but, well, we got to talking and the next thing I new it was after 1pm. So we went for a walk around my town. I showed Kym our town common and cemetery and pointed out the various highlights of our history.
We enjoyed a martini together before dinner, chatting with Dale and snacking on cheese and crackers.
I made a yummy dinner (pot roast, my go-to company main course) and an apple pie for dessert. I must admit, that apple pie was pretty perfect.
It’s really been a terrific time and today I will be delivering Kym to Patty and from there they will go on to Rhinebeck.
It’s so great when your imaginary friends turn out to be just like you’d hoped.
