Concord/Lexington Photo Shoot

Now that was one busy summer. Sarah and I are catching up on our travel blogging and getting prepped for the rapidly upcoming big trip! Here are a few highlights from our recent visit with Sarah's stepmom Debi and her partner Surya Das. We did a wonderful tour of the historic Concord and Lexington area of Massachusetts.
This is truly Red Sox nation. Every house has the date it was built, and a few special ones have some other markers as well :)
Are those Canadians trying to ring the town bell?
Sarah and Surya Das in front of the Concord Unitarian Universalist Church, built in 1636.
Yep, this is one old town. This is the road that runs right through Concord MA.
This is called Author's Ridge, part of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetary, where a number of famous American authors are buried including Thoreau.
We got a tour of the spot of the infamous "Shot Heard Round the World" where the Revolutionary War begun when British soldiers were fired upon by Concord militiamen.
One of Sarah's favorite activities when on the East Coast - Dunkin' Donuts Coolatas!
Yes, this is me, writing at Walden's Pond... (seemed like a good idea at the time)
One of the oldest houses in Lexington, right on the town square.

Cape Cod photo tour is upcoming!

93 days until liftoff!
