Concord, MA - 10/28/2012

North Bridge Visitor Center


Today we started out with a church service on base at Hanscom Chapel.  Their Protestant church service was at 9 AM and was followed by a time of fellowship.  We enjoyed the service and met some very nice people.  Several families also homeschool their children and we had good conversations about that as well.

On the Old North Bridge


After church, we went back to the Minuteman National Historical Park, but this time we went to the part in Concord where the North Bridge is located.  The North Bridge was the site where the first shot of the Revolution was ordered - otherwise known as "the shot heard 'round the world".   The American minutemen met the British army on the North Bridge and began this first battle.  We heard details of the battle during a Park Ranger talk.

Being silly in the leaves



When we finished at the park, we headed to the commissary to stock up on food and water.  Hurricane Sandy is headed to the New England area, and while Boston should be spared a direct hit, we want to be prepared.  We aren't sure what conditions will be like.  After the commissary, we had to return the rental car.  We did that and settled in for the night. 

We aren't sure what the rest of this week will hold, so we are planning on remaining in Boston until probably Thursday or Friday.  Wednesday is Halloween, so the base housing is the perfect place to take the kids Trick-or-Treating.  Should be an interesting week.
