Home Exchange in New England – continues in Concord, Massachussets

Having stayed in such a perfect cape cottage on Cape Cod for 10 days, it was hard to imagine how our second destination would be any more pefect – but it is!

Welcome to Concord, and our home for another 10 days. It is a beautiful historic home (1876!) which has been extended sympathetically and retains lots of original features and charms.

I am glad we spent time on the Cape first, relaxing on the beaches and swimming in the sea and the local ponds, while we recovered from the jet lag. We never needed to travel too far for meals out, ice-creams and different venues for the sunsets!

Our first few days here in Concord have been much more hectic, with lots of shopping and walking.

Today was a quieter day, as we recover and plan for our next few days in Boston.

This evening we enjoyed the late sun at Walden Pond – a beautiful spot.

More updates from me soon, but in the meantime here are another few beautiful images from Walden Pond and the sun began to set.

Thanks for taking time to visit, leave a comment if you can, thanks.

  6. Those pictures are beautiful. Doing a home-exchange seems exciting and adventurous. Every time I think about it I think about the movie The Holiday. One of my favorites. 🙂
