Answers to the guessing game:
1. Mt. Monadnock, New Hampshire
2. Outdoor mass at St. Peter’s Festival in Gloucester, Massachusetts
3. The view from Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal in Montreal, Quebec
(More posts on #2 and #3 to come later)
Mt. Monadnock is the 2nd most climbed mountain in the world (#1 is Mt. Fuji, if you’re curious), and there were definitely a lot of people there. We picked a fairly quiet trail though. M walked off the mountain with 3 ticks on his legs and I had more mosquito bites than I could count.
We decided to cut our trip short and get ice cream instead of camping in the mosquito infested bog.
But first a stop at this swimming hole (above) to cool off and remove the ticks, then a stroll through small town New Hampshire (below).
We finished our Memorial Day at the Cathedral of the Pines, a breathtaking outdoor cathedral for meditation and worship in the mountains.

We’ve really been enjoying this summer in Boston. There is still a long bucket list of things we need to do in our last month, but we’ve been hitting things up every weekend. I’m still sorting through photos, but just to give you a teaser, see if you can guess where we took these videos:
