Is there anything more inspiring than taking a pilgrimage, walking the paths of America's famous literary greats? We saw Louisa May Alcott's writing desk where she penned Little Women; Nathaniel and Sophia's window glass etchings made by their diamond rings; the honeymoon gardens Thoreau planted for The Hawthornes; Mrs. Alcott's yellow ware bowls so enchantingly displayed on her turkey red tablecloth; May's drawings on the walls of The Orchard House where she was encouraged by her father to paint to hone her talents(think of this the next time your little one takes crayon to wallpaper!)...We even trod the path between the Orchard House and The Wayside where the Alcotts and Hawthornes wore a path so long ago. Then on to a fabulous Sunday brunch at The Colonial Inn and a few antique shops. Wish you all could join us for such a day! Now time to revisit our dog-eared copy of Little Women!
