Brasshopper in Boston USA 2008

Brasshopper travelled to Boston, USA, in September 2008 with Richard and Judith from where he sent this report and pictures showing what he got up to.

I saw a New England lighthouse (the fact that lighthouses feature high up on the tourist board list of attractions is not encouraging!). I stayed in the former house of a whaling ship captain on Martha's Vineyard.I supervised the harvesting of a cranberry bog. I gazed across the river at the Boston skyline. And I had a close encounter with a horseshoe crab (luckily it was dead!). (Darth Vader look alike). Maybe one or two of these pics will go on your website to record my little holiday.
