My grandson, Theo, is at his first term and time away from home, at Worcester Polytechnical Institute. It was a great treat to get to see him and he showed me around campus. I cycled 40 miles from Pawtuckett, Rhode Island, to Worcester and stayed in an AirBnB because all the hotels were full for Parent Weekend.
October 1, my four month volunteer job at Prince William Forest Park ended and I took the train north to Providence, Rhode Island. Then I bicycled five miles to Pawtucket and spent the night.
My son Damon and his Ecuadorian wife Susana, came from Quito, Ecuador for a week. We visited Washington DC, the monuments, Washington Cathedral, the Smithsonian Art Gallery and enjoyed hiking and birding in Prince William Forest Park.
Spent the day exploring their living history museum. These are the original buildings, many built around 1745, pre-revolutionary war.
Taking a week off from my volunteer duties at the Park, I took the train to Willamsburg and cycled to Jamestown, making a 17-mile loop. Living history museum and ships of John Smith are fascinating.
The glasses are in my cabinet, collector items!
