Sue wanted to see the Chihuly: Through the Looking Glass exhibit at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and so Saturday 07/03 we drove down.
I hadn't expected the northbound traffic to be so heavy, but it was backed up from where we got onto the Spaulding Turnpike all the way past Amesbury, MA! Unbelievable!
Chihuly's exhibit was astounding! That's an understatement that even the pictures that Sue took fall far short of.capturing.
We got down there around 1:30pm and were surprised at the length of the line waiting to get in until one of the staff explained that it was 'Bank of America Day' at the museum where anyone with a Bank of America credit card gets in free. So, Sue whips out her BoA card and saves $22! Nice....
After going through the Chihuly exhibit, we wandered around through many of the other exhibits that either we hadn't seen last time or were new. But by 4:30, I was 'museum'd out' and we headed for the car and road home.
Even though traffic was moving along really well, I took the Rt. 107 exit off of I-95 just in case the Hampton Tolls were still backed up; a not unlikely event given that it was 4th of July weekend. We took the really scenic route up throuh Exeter and into Newmarket where we stopped for dinner at The Riverworks Tavern.
