Another day of travel and visiting family

We have missed some State Welcome signs, but not this one. :)

Today we started out at another cemetery in Warren, RI where the caretaker was so nice to pull all of the cards of the Chace/Chase names.  We looked through and wrote down as much data as we could.

Then we left that area and drove out to Cape Cod.  We visited a nice lighthouse and then stopped in Hyannis and got a picture or two of the JFK museum. We didn't go in, because we lived that entire era and have seen it all many times. 

From there we moved on to visit the Plymouth Rock and Mayflower II.  Even picked up another spoon for Judy's collection.

The end of the day took us north to meet another family member and his partner and visit the evening away.  We had met Dean many years ago when he came to California, but it was great to re kindle old friendships and share stories about the family and look through a collection of photos he had from years past, including some of members of the family from several generations back.  They also served us a terrific dinner!! 

All together a very nice day, including the weather!! :D
