Day 3

We finished our trip to Boston today.  We left the hotel in Sidney, NY at 8:30 a.m.  Our first stop was Stockbridge, MA to visit the Norman Rockwell Museum.

Don't miss driving in fog (which we left behind in WV).  Within half an hour we drove out of the fog, thankfully!

Here's Tim and his mom reading and studying one of the Norman Rockwell paintings.  They read and I took pictures!  :D  Pictures were allowed WITHOUT a flash being used.  You were not allowed to get any closer than 12" to any of the paintings.

After we looked at all the paintings and visited the gift shop, we came out to this tent to eat lunch.  Tim and I shared a chicken sandwich with pesto mayo and lettuce on a bread type that begins with an "f" but I forget the name.  I also got some potato salad.  Delicious lunch even if it was a bit expensive.

Here's Tim and his mom posing for a picture at the edge of the picnic tent before we walked over to the studio where Norman Rockwell did his painting.

Here's the plaque outside the studio which shows a picture of him at work in the studio.

This was a nice fall display that was set up for a nice photo op.  Tim told the husband of the woman standing off to the right that he would take their picture if he would take our in return.  Obviously he agreed!  :D

We drove the last leg of the trip for the day into Braintree (a suburb of Boston) which was 2 1/2 hours from Sidney, NY.  Very nice and spacious rooms.  We will hop on a van at 8 a.m. to be transported to Boston to begin the trolley touring.  It will be another long day!  We will need to rest at home after our vacation!  :D

I'm a big Norman Rockwell fan but we have never been in that neck of the woods. Your travelog will help us plan one, I think!

Hmm. Some impressive history ahead in Braintree if you like that kind of stuff (which I do). :)

Looks like it was a beautiful day!

Was it foccacia bread (pronounced fuh-cotch-cha)? I LOVE it and want to bake it myself soon.

How fun! Glad you didn't have to drive in fog too long. :)
