I love to visit historic sites and yesterday was the day for that. We didn't have time to see it all - that would take several days to a few weeks - but we saw some highlights.
We took a tour of Orchard House, where Louisa May Alcott grew up. The tour was very interesting and 80% of the furnishings were original to the family. We weren't allowed to take any pictures inside the home. I really makes me want to read more about her life. The only book of hers that I have read is Little Women. And of course, I've seen the movie numerous times. The movie that came out around 1950 is one of the movies that we were allowed to go to and we saw it at a drive-in theatre!

I didn't buy very much; fat 8ths, FQs and 2 pieces of wool.
The day was beautiful and if you are wondering, the leaves are starting to change. I'll try to get some pictures today. There are so many things (colorful trees, houses, barns, churches) that I see as we are driving down the road that I want to take pictures of, but there is no place to stop. The roads are 2 lanes with no shoulders and you can't just stop to take pictures. Or, we are on the freeway going 55 mph and can't stop.
Today we are going to Quincy and Boston!
