Yesterday we went to Plimouth Plantation and the Mayflower. Did the whole tourist thing, talked to the re-enactors and learned all about the hardships the Pilgrims went through (stuff I learned back in grade school, the last time I toured PP, but I had forgotten since then, of course). It was a beautiful day, and we got to see, as a bonus, one of the tall ships. Had a blast.
I took my son down to the beach for about a half hour and just sat on the sand (before it got dark). It was so peaceful and pretty. I really, really love the ocean.
Then I woke up this morning to a nice surprise--Barbara Vey of Publishers Weekly is featuring THE WELL on her blog, with a review from a teen who loved it! a nice way to start a holiday!
Hope you all have a great Fourth!
