The Idea for a Trip
Sister Shirley and her husband Jerry invited us to a New England trip to help celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. We said we're in, and the plans were made.
Shirley reserved us three nights in Boston, then we moved into Maine for four nights in Portland, then five nights in Bar Harbor.
