Yesterday, Ellie and I drove up to Old Sturbridge Village so she could see Rowan doing her thing up there. It was 86 on the Cape and 90 in Sturbridge. Fabulous drive up but getting out of the car was quite an adjustment from the AC to, umm, not. There was a decent breeze though which kept it from being unbearable, huge blessing that.
First stop, go find Rowan, she had called to tell me she would be doing Games by the Mill Pond so off we went. She was teaching tourists how to fish, 1838 style.
Shortly thereafter, Rowan went to lunch so we continued our tour of the Village.
My friend Ellie has a great eye for photography, here are some of her photos from the day.
Yours truly. Humidity is not my friend.
Breakfast at Freeman farm. Rice fritters and chicken curry mincemeat.
The Miner Grant Store, an oasis of AC in an otherwise insanely hot day. We bought lemonade and cookies for Rowan and the other interns at the dye station, her gig for the afternoon. So hot! Kettles of boiling dye over an open fire with all those clothes on!
All in all, a lovely day spent with a dear friend.
Home in time to get over to the church for VBS and take another almost 200 photos of the kids having a grant time.
My beloved, hamming it up as, "Rainforest Rick".
