Saturday we spent an interesting day at the Norman Rockwell museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. For you young ‘uns, Norman Rockwell was a very famous painter who painted most of the covers for the Saturday Evening Post from 1916 to late 60s. His paintings carried important messages through decades of culture change – through the first and second World Wars, during civil rights activism, and served as a moral compass for many of us in the 50s and 60s. The museum had a collection of over 300 Post covers.

Saturday night we again took advantage of a Cracker Barrel in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, and on Sunday we drove a short distance to Littleton, Massachusetts, to the Minutemen Campground where we will stay for a couple of days and tour Boston. More about that later.
