Lambie Pie...Adventures in Boston

Hang on ...this is a long and crazy ride! Meet Lambie Pie, an honored member of our family. A few years ago, when Annie was in school, I went to Boston to visit my best friend. Annie suggested I take L.P along so I wouldn't be lonely on the long train ride...I don't fly anymore.(long, very scary story).
So begins the story of Lambie Pie's Boston Adventure...she went everywhere we did. 
Because it was cold, I had to knit her a scarf to wear up north....I warned you it was crazy!

We settled in...

...enjoyed the changing landscape...

...and cuddled up.

We shared a nice little cabin, the seat converts to a cozy bed and the scenery was wonderful.

Day One...we said hello to Henry David Thoreau at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord. Don't you love the simple "Henry" marker?
A stop at The Old North Bridge on a rainy, chilly day led to something warm to drink in the tavern room of The Wayside Inn, and a minute to warm our tootsies by the fire.

           Lambie Pie wrote a postcard home every night, telling Annie about our day's adventure.

Day Two...Nantucket! Wow, do we love this little island! We took the ferry out of Hyannis Port and arrived ready to see the sights. First stop, the local yarn shop...a lamb can never have enough scarves!

The cottages of Sconset are pure Nantucket!

 Nantucket takes you back in time as soon as you step onto the cobble stone streets.


The whole town was decked out for Daffodil Weekend. Looks like we did a bit of shopping...always!

Local folk lore says if you toss a penny in the water as you round Brant Point, you will someday return to Nantucket...we tossed our pennies and waved goodbye to "the grey lady".

Day Three...Boston. No trip to Boston is complete without a couple..or a dozen...of loster rolls. These were enjoyed on a sunny day in Quincy Market.

Lambi Pie insisted on having her picture taken on this donkey outside the Old Latin School...the oldest public school in the country.

 I think L.P. wants to be a teacher when she grows up...or a jockey.

Another lobster roll at the Union Oyster House...a sip of ice tea...our adventure is coming to an end...

Lambie Pie had a wonderful time in New England. She was sad to leave, but excited to be going home...back to Annie Pie. We boarded the train heading south...

...and dreamed about all the lovely sights we had seen.

Enjoy the day,


  1. Sounds like a great trip -- and you had such a wooly companion too! :D Fun to see the train ride and all the sights. I love Boston and area. My sister lives in Concord too!

  2. What a cute idea! Loved the story! The cobblestone streets are so beautiful... sure wish I could get my hands on a lobster roll for today's lunch! :-)

  3. Robyn, Loved your travel journal with L.P. My sister lived in upstate NY for awhile, and another sister and I took a trip to see her...I LOVED New England! The quaint towns, the antiques, the shops, the food, the scenery...it was perfect.

  4. I love Nantucket, and I love Lamie Pie! So adolable and so agreeable, and not the least bit camera shy! Can you market LP, I think we all need a friend like that.
    p.s. My finished bunnies and patterns are starting to appear on my etsy shop. www.etsy.com/thecooperscottage

  5. Hi Robyn,
    What an absolutely adorable post!! I loved your sweet adventures with Lambie Pie and know she was the perfect travelling companion!! How I would LOVE one of those lobster rolls too!!!
    Thanks for making my day with your great post!! And by the way, I LOVE your hat!!!!
    Blessings and Hugs~~

  6. I loved the trip, thanks for taking us along! Great trip to a place that I will probably never get to visit in person. I fly most places, but I would love to take a train, some time.


  7. Hi, Robyn,
    I love all your pictures of Nantucket, the wonderful weathered cottages. But I especially love all the work and creativity that you put into this post. I loved it!!!

  8. Robyn ~
    I absolutely adore this post! It brings a smile to my face each time I think about dear Lambie Pie. How sweet that Annie suggested you needed a traveling companion :)
    Thanks for sharing a picture of beautiful you. It's so nice to put a face to a blog friend.
    Pug hugs :)

  9. Oh Lambie Pie was the best tour guide! The pics were awesome. Loved the cobblestone streets. Looks like you had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing. Take care, Janice

  10. Oh, this was the most precious post. I remember when I was little I loved Shari Lewis and Lambchop, her lamb puppet.
    Lambie Pie reminded me.

  11. A very full trip experience for Lambie.

  12. Thanks for all your comments, my friends. I'm glad our Lambie Pie's adventure brought smiles to so many faces!

  13. What a sweet post Missy Robyn....and how thoughtful and kind of Annie to suggest that Lambie Pie accompany you. Looks like she made for a perfect traveling companion. I would love to visit New England some day....People who know me well say they think I belong there. Hmmmmm..... Fun, creative, post my friend - and you are BEAUTIFUL!! ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  14. I loved the tour you and LP gave us...absolutely wonderfully creative...I LOVED IT.
    My husband and I toured Boston on a trip east one year and I'd dearly love to go back.
    I think we saw the same things you did - and a lot more but never a wonderful shop like the SHEEP TO SHORE...how clever a name.
