Bearly traveled beautifully throughout the whole New Mexico to Massachusetts experience. He only used a tiny bit of the calming drug the vet recommended and managed the plane changes and altitude changes, etc. beautifully. He met our host family as if he were ambassador for the whole canine kingdom. I'm one proud Mama, you betcha! He's definitely aware he's not home, but he's taking things in stride very well.
Yesterday afternoon we were included in a block party to celebrate the Grand Centennial for Janet, a neighbor. I have never lived in a place where this sort of event could/would take place. Very impressive!
We arrived in Providence about 5 ish and drove less than an hour to E. Sandwich. After dinner, we made a quick run to the beach (2 blocks away) to catch the first sunset of our trip. We've been to a marina for a great seafood lunch yesterday, and will probably do a whale-watching day cruise from here. Can't wait for that! I've never seen a whale in real life!
The household is awake and moving now. Kids will be off to camp in less than an hour. Time to put the computer away and begin to think of breakfast. yum.
