This weekend, Rosie and I took a celebratory trip to New England in response to my job offer. I wanted to catch a few Elipsus shows, see the Atlantic Ocean, and enjoy Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. We flew into Providence Friday, scurried around Mass and CT Saturday, and flew back to Detroit on Sunday morning.
In Chestnut Hill, MA, we found this lovely Irish cemetery. I hope to come back and explore it with Cola next week.
This is the cemetery chapel. It’s up on a hill overlooking the sacred grounds.
Driving down Commonwealth en route to Boston Common
After a crazy city drive, 20 minutes of walking, and a temperamental parking meter, we arrived at Boston Common. Rosie wanted to get a picture next to the sign.
Walking up the hill to the war monument. Rosie got tired!

Going up to enjoy the bandstand
Impromtptu performances by mother…
Below this defaced peace monument, we found a few dirty hyperdermics
and decapitated heads on the relief sculptures.
And then the rain started like crazy. This church was for sale in Wellesley. Got an extra $4m?
We drove down to New Haven to Fox’s concert at the Borders in Milford.
Taking Rosie to all these concerts makes her more like me each day
We pulled faces at Fox all through the concert to distract him
Post-show, right before he drove to his show in Stamford and Rosie and I drove back to Providence. It was a great 36 hour getaway!
