Gray skies but only a very light drizzle allowed us to wander out on an adventure today. We visited the John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site in Brookline MA, the birthplace of our 35th President. We lucked into a private tour which meant that we could ask as many questions as we wanted. It was a chance to learn more about life in Boston in the 1910’s as well as get to know a little more of the back story of the Kennedy family. One of these days we will have to count up how many Presidential sites we have visited since August 2008.

We finished up our Brookline visit with a dish of Hot Fudge topped Maple Buttah Walnut ice cream at JP Licks at Coolidge Corner. Then once Rachel and Greg returned home we made incredible homemade pizza and settled in for the evening.

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
