Another Reunion

Today I'm driving to Danvers to join my high school classmates (Class of 1961) for a reunion dinner at the Breakaway (former Village Green).  That's very close to the street where I grew up, so I'll aim to arrive early for a brief drive around the area, to see what has changed since my last Danvers visit. 

Also today, I plan to stop in Salem to see exhibits at the Peabody Essex Museum, especially the Childe Hassam paintings of the Isles of Shoals.  I enjoyed the Isles of Shoals in the late 1950's and early 1960's – first at a week-long church conference for teenagers,  and later as a summer employee (chambermaid) at the Oceanic Hotel on Star Island.

A trip back in time...    'way back!   These connections go back more than 50 years.
