LEXINGTON AND CONCORD

"The shot heard 'round the world". Ralph Waldo Emerson
That quote describes the significance of the brief battle that took place at the North Bridge where we took this photo of the Concord River. To think this is what the minute men would have seen should they have taken their eyes off the battle. It gives you shivers.
In a time warp we managed to get the likeness of one of those minute men! We then crossed the bridge and sat here facing the river while listening to a park ranger tell us all about the battle and history leading up to it. Now that really gives you shivers! It definitely felt like hallowed ground.
For Monday's lunch we found the quaintest little cafe in Concord.
Main Streets Market and Cafe ended up being a very good choice. The whole town was picturesque and overflowing with history.
