We are home, bags unpacked (mostly), and recovering from the jet-lag by spending the afternoon on the beach. Temperature has dropped significantly but we enjoyed the warm sunshine, but missed the warmer waters of New Emgland.
We packed quite a lot into our final days in Concord, MA. It is a beautiful small New England town full of history and charm.
We went to Canobie Lake, NH which was a small scale theme park. The kids and the big kid loved it.
We also canoed along the river in Concord from the South Bridge to the famous/infamous North Bridge.
We returned to Boston (on the T again) and explored the waterfront area a little before going to Cirque Du Soleil – AMAZING! Tickets were pricey, but worth it.
The above photo was taken BEFORE the show started – I promise!
On our last morning we packed/cleaned and headed out for brunch before leaving for the airport.
No problems with car hire and no flight delays. A little turbulence on the plane, and daughters are no keener on flying, as my husbands squished hands will testify too. Our son loved it, and waited excitedly on the runway for our plane to “launch”. Little sleep to be had on the plane, but we arrived in Dublin to a beautiful sunrise at 5am.
Our whole family can’t wait to try another house swap next year – open to offers! You can view our cottage HERE
