On Saturday evening, we had dinner with a dear old friend and Peter and Linda at their home in Cambridge. There was much laughter for hours, including during an outdoor supper under a handsome patio chandelier and surrounded by flowers of all colors.

South Station (Amtrak), Boston
Yesterday, we ended my "surprise" (or "kidnapped") weekend in Boston with another visit to the Museum of Fine Arts in the morning, followed by lunch in its breezy courtyard among many other visitors, including two young sisters who pranced and skipped around while their parents sat at a table in the shade. Later, we sat in the Commons for awhile, taking pleasure in the simple kinds of happiness we saw among the many visitors. At 3:00, we boarded our train for a cool and serene ride down to our hilltop home in Mystic. We ended the wearying but very satisfying day by watching an early Alfred Hitchcock film, The Lady Vanishes, on our new big-screen television.
