An Unexepectedly Delightful Morning
The morning started off well, though, because the sun was shining after a number of cold, gray, rainy days. When I arrived at the registry all the metered parking spaces were gone. I looped around a few times trying to nail a spot without success. In the end I decided to take a new road in hopes of finding other meters.
At last, there I found parking. Along with the parking I found a row of historic early 19th century homes. I was so tempted to grab my camera and take a stroll but I resisted.
It's not often that I find all facets of the work I love all within one block - genealogy research, historic houses and 18th century gravestone carvings.
Coming out of the registry I was washed with unusually sunny warmth for November. As I crossed the street heading back toward my car I couldn't resist pulling out my camera (which I carry with me at all times) and capturing the historic homes.
It's not often that a day trip and a location work out quite so well for me. It was truly an unexepectedly delightful morning.
