We followed the turnpike until we were well inside the Massachusetts state line, then branched off onto picturesque Rt. 20, which we followed, more or less, the rest of the way into Boston. We arrived at the Valianti/Klim household in Brighton around 6pm.

10-year old Delia had been particularly looking forward to seeing us again, but was due to go off to ‘Riding Camp’ in Gloucester, MA, on Sunday. We agreed that we would do some sight-seeing with her on Saturday, and, after a jolly evening around the kitchen table, we all got a relatively early night.
