When you drive by the Old Fore River Shipyard at the East Entrance is an old Cashman Construction truck. The first few times you drive by your attention goes right to it. Cashman Construction rents space at the shipyard.

Clock Watching - Day 157

Everything changed very quickly today when I got a call from my mother that she wasn't feeling well. Her doctor was on vacation and was told to go to South Shore Hospital's emergency room. Thank goodness after 7 hours and many tests they found that her blood pressure medicine had to be reduced. What a relief.

Castle Island - Day 155

Went over to Sullivan's at Castle Island tonight. While eating we heard three shot beeps of a ships horn. I left George to see what ship was coming by. It was the Maasdam booting along as if she had a schedule to meet. By the time I got to the harbor she was there. It was nice to see the Maasdam we sailed on her around the Mediterranean on our first European cruise.

Grist Mill - Day 138

Today I drove up Southern Artery in Quincy by CVS and saw that the work has began on the restoration of the Grist Mill on the banks of the Town River. It was built in 1806 and is the oldest surviving combination grist and saw mill in America. It is wonderful that it can be restored before it completely fell in the river.
