A DAY IN THE LIFE OF MARBLEHEAD, MY HOME TOWN.

REDD'S POND WITH STRIPES AND NO BOATS!
A VERY OLD AND SPOOKY GRAVE AT OLD BURIAL HILL.
MARBLE HEADERS DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST...DEFENDING OUR GREAT COUNTRY AND LIBERTIES.
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF MARCH?
ONE OF MY ANCESTORS GRAVESTONE.

SIMPLE AND BEAUTIFUL IN IT'S OLD WAY.....
A GLORIOUS PLACE TO HAVE LUNCH FOR FREE.
WAITING FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS.

Spent the day being a tourist in my home town, a town I lived in since birth. A town I can trace my roots back almost 200 years. I found the grave of an old relative buried up on Old Burial Hill, who I am related to through my great, great uncle William Farrell. The family name is Ashton....Sarah died at age 6. I also found a street named after my great grandfather's family, it's called Farrell Ct.  I love my hometown, and this will not be the last you will see on Patty P Here!
Beautiful day for a day dream down memory lane...
God Bless America and Marblehead Forever, we sang this song as kids.
