Marblehead predates the Revolutionary War. We stayed at the Maverick B&B which was filled with memorabilia telling tales of rugged fishermen, intrepid mariners, enterprising merchants, skilled craftsmen, self reliant women and courageous seamen who played a crucial role in America's struggle for independence.
We drove through the leafy streets of Salem to catch a ferry into Boston. The 90 minute ride was uneventful but foggy. We took the On and Off Trolley tour of the city, then sailed back to Marblehead. Bypassing the city of Boston, we drove through the three mile tunnel known as "The Big Dig" then via the smaller town of Quincy to Cohasset to stay with friends Mary Jo and Rob. It is no wonder they love the parks, nature walks, rocky river inlets and deep blue ocean of Scituate and Hull. Thank you for your generous hospitality.
