We’ve been here three days and I just haven’t found the time to post anything as yet.  This may not be very long either as we’re going to go biking to the famous, or maybe infamous, Bonaventure Cemetary.    It’s been a lovely stay so far.  The weather has been a bit on the chilly side apparently. We don’t mind it too much as the weather we left behind in Massachusetts is in the lower and minus zero digits.  We’ve had 1 day of 65 and the others in the high 40s and lower 50s.  Not bad really….

We’ve walked many miles already in the historic district:  just lovely.  Huge homes from the early 1800s that survived the “War of Northern Aggression” since Sherman gave this town to Lincoln as a Christmas present the year he was marching across the South.  The town had several fires and epidemics, but the homes were reclaimed by historians and preservationists in the 1950s and some of them are astounding.   What has particularly surprised me and means I have some reading to do is how much colonial and revoluationary war history took place in this town.

The many many squares in the district make for an even lovelier place to explore.

Some lovely photos over the last few days:
