We were out the door early, and headed for nearby Kinderhook and
Martin Van Buren's grave. We quickly found the cemetery, and took too
much time to take a detail tour of his house, "Lindenwald".
The guide was informative, but the information was not that
interesting to us. Dave wanted to detour down to FDR at Hyde Park,
but Lyn was insistant about heading for Boston.
We arrived in Boston in the heart of rush hour. Using only a small
map and no experience, we accidentally headed to Lexington and stayed
at an expensive flea-bag motel (and ate dinner at Dennys!).
We visited the Minute Man statue at the Lexington and Concord site
during the filming of reenacters dressed in colonial costume. Years
later, on a return visit, we actually got to see the film shown at
the visitor center.
