Exploring New England: Day Four

A few Autumns ago I was wrapping up a mini road trip around New England. On day four I travelled from Hartford, Connecticut through Rhode Island, where I detoured to visit a corn maze, and finished in Boston, where an unexpected adventure awaited me that night.

I began by visiting the Mark Twain Museum, but I only looked at the outside before starting the drive to Salisbury Farm in Rhode Island.

The maze was made of the words ‘Boston Strong’, in tribute to the bombing at the Boston Marathon earlier that year.  Connecticut to Boston 093 Connecticut to Boston 099 Connecticut to Boston 100 Connecticut to Boston 102 Connecticut to Boston 110 Connecticut to Boston 115 Connecticut to Boston 119 Connecticut to Boston 120 Connecticut to Boston 121 Connecticut to Boston 127It took me some time to make my way out, and as I struggled through the ‘R’ I was forced to admit that I had overestimated my maze-routing abilities. Connecticut to Boston 147 Connecticut to Boston 021 Connecticut to Boston 132I was pleased to finally emerge from the maze exit, but I had another challenge awaiting me: driving into Boston in peak hour on day one of the World Series at Fenway Park. And so my road trip story ended after the traditional crisis and climax situation, followed by the wonderful resolution of arriving at a cosy hostel (HI Boston) and the bonus, unplanned activity of World Series Game One that night.
