1759 and 99…

Today was a travel day.  But first I had some maintenance work to do.

The circuit breaker on our 7.5 KW onboard diesel generator broke while we were in Williamsburg a few weeks ago, so I had to order a new one.

And it was waiting for me when we got to Joan’s this week.

And what should have been a 15 minute job took about 2 hours due to the bad design of the generator case.  You should not have to disassemble the entire case of a washer-sized generator just to replace a component on the control panel.

After I got the generator back together and got cleaned up,  we headed out about noon for our 100 mile trip east to Foxboro, MA near Boston.

Our park is called Normandy Farms Campground, and,  as the sign says, it’s been here since  1759.

Yes… 1759!

Well, not the campground, but the farm itself has been owned by the Daniels family since 1759.  The 7th, 8th, and 9th generations are now running the place.

The campground had been here for about 35 years

After getting everything set up, we headed out to get a bite to eat.

We had seen a new-to-us restaurant chain here in the East called 99 Restaurants and decided to give it a try.

And a good choice it was.

Jan had one of her favorites, Turkey and Dressing, and I had a Pecan-Crusted Chicken Salad.  This place is now on our favorites list.

After we got home, I got  the satellite antenna set up.  Due to tall trees,  the last two parks we’ve been in have been ‘satellite-less’, so it’s good to have it back.

Tomorrow we head into Boston to see the sites.

More then…
