We’re in Massachusetts!

19 April 2006 8 Comments

Just a quick post cos we’re really tired, it’s been a long day.

We’ve been driving down the East coast the past couple of days. This morning we went to Cape Ann, it’s really beautiful. I took a few pictures so I’ll add them at the bottom. Then this afternoon we went to Boston! That was great, we didn’t spend very long there, but we went to the Cheers bar and did a bit more shopping. Go Red Sox! I didn’t get to see Fenway Park or the Celtics stadium, but there’s always next time. Me and Robyn definately want to come back to Boston, it’s ace.

Um, in other news, a pigeon left a present on my Dad’s hat today, that was funny. Oh and a quick message to Karen, you can let Andy know that Dunkin Donuts is most definately not going out of business, today we counted 18 on our travels. And that was just today. So rest easy now.

Here are a few more pics, with descriptions:

This is part of Cape Ann. Pretty, huh?

This is the Cheers bar in Boston. Like the way I’ve angled the shot to mirror the opening credits?

Also, we made another video today. Shaz, you will be happy to see we took your advice and employed some special effects to this one. The splash is much more realistic.

Me killing Robyn – the sequel

Well, this turned out to be a bit longer than I planned, sorry if I bored you. I really have to go to bed now. Tomorrow we’re going to Cape Cod, home of Dawson’s Creek! And then the day after we’re going to Mystic, home of the movie Mystic Pizza. They actually do have great pizza at that place, I’ve been before so that should be a lot of fun.

So talk to you tomorrow. Keep those comments coming, we love hearing from you all cos we miss you!

OK Robyn wants to say a quick hello.

Hi there. Today was fun. We got the underground into Boston, which was a lot like the underground in London, so I felt very at home. (I love the underground.)
I’m feeling very cool sat here in my new Boston Red Sox shirt!

Today we also saw the statue of the fisherman guy that was recently on the back of one of the magazines. It was an article all about fishermen lost at sea. I think it was on the back page of an Awake…. We were just minding our own business taking photographs when this crazy guy pulled over in his car, and made me and Ian go talk to him. It turns out he used to be a tour guide in the area and his grandfather posed for the statue. He told us the history of the entire area and every British person ever to set foot on American soil, as well as stories of how all the sailors and fisherman died. It was interesting but we couldn’t get away. He did let me take a picture of him, but i don’t have it at the minute to upload. He was crazy…..

Also, I went in Macy’s for the first time today. I was so disappointed. I had been led to believe it was a magical place where dreams came true. It is not…

    hi girls,
    Just been reading your new entries, we like the photos. You said you were going to cape cod, you’ll have to send us some pics of that, i imagine it will be nice.
    Nothing much here to report, we cut the grass yesterday, used the new lawnmower it picks up the grass its like hoovering the lawn, what a clever machine.
    Don’t suppose you got a picture of the villanous pigeon in the act?
    Anyway, have a good time, see you later,
    mum

    The video doesn’t seem to be working. Maybe YouTube thought it was a snuff film, took it down and sent it to the police. You might have some trouble getting back into the country. Just thought I ought to warn you.

    Hey girls! Love the sound affects on the movie. Definatly George Lucas style. Those pictures were pretty amazing too. There’s a Cheers bar in Zakynthos aswell. However, the one in Boston looks a little bit more classy. Very posh!
    Take care now, bye bye now!
