The First Sunday of this FALL

 Today as I strolled along the pond the warm sunshine poured down on me and I felt at peace. It is so humbling. The signs of autumn are all around me now creating a gorgeous colourful tapestry for my eyes to feast upon on. It is this part of the season that I enjoy the most. I love how there's such a melange of vibrant colours spread around me everywhere. 
  With the cathedral in the background there's a sort of majestic aura to this awesome scenario.
  I hope you are enjoying some quiet and peaceful time too. I know mine will be brief now so I must make the most of it. Right?

USS Constitution

  Buddy is at the wheel of the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, launched in 1797. It still has active sailors and marines on board as ambassadors to the public. To tour it required security searches and valid passport ID. 
  "Old Ironsides" as it's also known sits in water in the Charlestown Navy Yard at 1 Constitution Road, just up the road from our hotel. It's closeness made it our first stop of the many historic sites that followed, all captivating our curiosity and delight.

Boston Trip

We're off to Boston for the first time and we're flying from Buffalo. It's much cheaper but we have to drive two hours to get there. We have some family in Boston that we wish to see, a nephew who just had his first son. Buddy is so excited to be flying with us. Our one daughter will join us too. Hope to take some great snaps along the way. Have a great weekend.

The tree in my header sits by the church depicted in the last post. Look carefully and you can see through it's trunk! This tree is over 500 years old. That it remains standing is a mystery. What could it tell us if we knew how to communicate with it in a way that works for us? There must be a lot of history in it's past.
