Spring miniTour 2018: Day 9

March 31, 2018

Up at the not-really-but-it-seems-like-it crack of dawn. Dawn, for the first time in several days, there’s sun! Stow away the sleeping gear, coffee. I make breakfast – more coffee, scrambled eggs with red onions and cheese, fresh asparagus. Dei has an online meeting. Al and I pack and repack the car, off by 11am.

Morning coffee

Selfie

Off by 11am, backroads to I84, traffic is light all the way to Hartford CT, which is, as usual, slow going. However it lightens up, we cruise to Massachusetts border, I90 to I290 to I495, we’re back in Lowell by 3pm. Dei takes off for Boston. I take a shower, and change clothes. Mary Ann cooks a delicious dinner.

Back into Al’s car, we drive into Somerville, to Washington Street Arts, load in and set up.

We load out. Al, Mary Ann, Joe and I stop for nachos and beer. Michelle joins us, like old times. We leave Joe and Michelle at Christopher’s and head home. In bed by midnight.
