|Today we learned the hard way what happens when you try to take on too much. Answer: nothing. We had a crazy plan to "dip in" to Manhattan on our way to Barrington, Rhode Island. Bad idea. We got caught in horrendous traffic, which ended up adding an additional four hours to our ride. Then, the clam bake that we thought was happening in Rhode Island turned out to be a bust. Game-saving plan: Call up our friend Judy, who was expecting us in Westborough, Massachusetts the following night and ask to throw ourselves on her hospitality a day ahead of schedule. Judy and her husband, Eugenio, graciously agreed and we ended the day on a high note with fabulous local pizza and some lovely Chestnut Cellar wine ( thank you, Danyal).
