As I write this I am lingering and savouring the last of my Sunday, the last day of our New England staycation. I have never staycationed before and I must say, it was quite lovely. We had leisurely mornings where I made vegan blueberry pancakes (9) from Oh She Glows, picked our activities based on the weather and explored areas new to me (everything) and even some new to NPR who has lived in the Boston area before.
The week consisted of a trip to Providence, RI with a tour of the RISD museum (14-18), took Beaux on a long nature walk that he LOVED in a beautiful reserve called World's End and there were BUNNIEHS (11-13)!! We explored the Edward Gorey House Museum, a place where skeletons sit on chairs, creepy babies hang out in cups next to beautiful found glass and life size stuffed bears have their own stuffed bears to keep them company (1-8), in other words my dream house. We drove along the business road of the Cape, stopping to play miniature golf and have ice cream in Yarmouth (19). On the rainy days we visited the JFK Library and caught a matinee of Blue Jasmine with all the old couples of Cambridge. In other words, it was pure, relaxing delight.
Have you had any summer vacations or staycations?
