Day 364, Year 10: Trip to the New England Aquarium & Lee and ME Arrive
Date: Friday, October 9, 2015
Weather: Mostly Cloudy with Rain in the Evening
Location: Back Home on Windbird in Quissett Harbor, Falmouth, MA

Big Day! Mark and I met Heather and boys at the New England Aquarium early in the day and by evening we were back in Falmouth having dinner at Heather and Jed’s with Mary Ellen and Lee (Mark’s sister and brother-in-law). And tonight Mary Ellen and Lee are here aboard Windbird with us. They will be with us through the long holiday weekend and we are really looking forward to the visit.

As always we loved visiting the Aquarium. Mark couldn’t stay long as he had to get to Mass General for another round of double whammy radiation sessions. But I stayed with Heather, Sam, Jonah, and Ollie. I handed my camera over to Sam who took some great photos and videos. Unfortunately it’s just too late and I’m too tired to get those posted tonight, but they will be coming soon. As much as we all love the Aquarium, by 3 pm the boys were starting to lose it, so we headed home. Heather and boys parked at the Quincy Adams T station in Braintree so that at the end of the day they could ride the T instead of fighting Friday evening inner-city traffic. Very smart. Unfortunately Mark and I were already in the city and couldn’t do the same thing. Mark’s treatment wasn’t over until close to 4 pm and we didn’t get home until after 7 pm. That’s the longest it has ever taken us to drive home from Boston. The traffic was horrific. But it was Friday evening of a 3-day weekend and it was pouring rain. With a great deal of patience, we made it and will now start enjoying our time with Lee and Mary Ellen.
