Funny how my hubby does find such great places to visit. We had a blast! The Air BNB that we did stay in the Massachusetts area was way cool, I think we have  several pics of it, I will be sure to share that with you soon ...I know we probably have the insides ...will check. Still weeding myself through these photos from 2023 ...what a great year of travel. Do you have travel plans this 2024?!?! Take Care. Thank you so kindly for the visit. Be Well. Beth ( ;

1900. I would have thought it was 1000 years old, not one hundred!
