Home again?

Saturday morning we sadly left the wonderful Blades Hotel in London. Our room was tiny, but the central location and superb staff make this hotel a fantastic base for London adventuring. Here's Josie as we're leaving our room...Our travels on Saturday took us via London Underground to Paddington Station where we caught the train to Heathrow, then by plane to Reykjavik and on to Boston where we rented a car and drove out to Concord, MA (on the wrong side of the road!!). We had a couple of hours in Iceland...enough time to have some seafood, Icelandic beer and skyr and to buy Dot a pair of socks (angora will be the new possum).

Now, we're back in the Concord, MA. We're staying at my friend Elizabeth's mom's house. Elizabeth and I met in grad school at CU eons ago. She still lives in Boulder, but is here visiting her mom. Today we're going to visit the Lexington-Concord battle sites and see the Orchard House where Louisa May Alcott lived.

Tomorrow we fly to Denver. We're both sad that our trip is nearing its end....sniff.
