Middlefield, CT & Boston, MA (20th August 2008)
It was a great day today. Ada sunshine tapi tak panas. Kami keluar rumah around 10.30am sekali dgn atuk & nenek (landlord kami). Diorang nak bawak kami tgk pokok apple. Littleman all the way dlm kereta, sibuk kata "I want apple tree".
We were brought to Lyman Orchards @ Middlefield, CT, around 45 minutes from our place. Lyman Orchards is "owned and operated by the Lyman Family since 1741, Lyman Orchards is recognized as the ninth oldest family-owned business in America". We went for apples picking here. Ada Sunflower Maze, tapi malas nak try :D Lain dari tu, ada gak la pokok peach, oranges and pears. Tapi yg still berbuah only the apples.
After spending some times picking apples there, kami pun terus gerak ke Boston. Boston is just around 2 hours driving from our place, but this will be our maiden trip there. Sampai kat Boston, we parked our car nearby Faneuil Hall Market Place in a public parking area. Rasanya mcm strategic location tempat parking ni, since most of the attractions are within walking distance.
We spent the whole evening around Faneuil Hall ni - North Market, South Market and Quincy Market. We kinda like the environment here. Nampak very happening tapi tak busy mcm NYC. Next time dtg boleh la lepak2 sini lagi. (Aina, you'll love this place nanti).
Kami pusing2 area sini sambil cari2 barang orang kirim, sambil tu sempat gak la sambar sandal Crocs one each. Pas tu masuk kat HRC Boston, which happened to be same building dgn tempat parking. Before gerak balik, kami sempat la singgah Cambridge dulu melawat MIT and Harvard Uni. Tak sempat la nak pegi Northeastern Uni sebab out of the route. Sorry Damien & Kevin.
