On the boat, we learned about how the oyster industry came and went in the last century, saw nesting osprey, and saw how the landscape changed with the increasing saltiness of the water. We really enjoyed ourselves but could understand that if you hadn't borrowed bug spray from a nice couple and was expecting something bigger, you'd be as disappointed as you were going to the Punkin Chunkin' Competition in DE (hypothetically speaking of course!).

Get a Chicken
So we went to the Somerville Street Fair to spy.... er, observe... how other towns handle their street fairs and to check out the booth set ups. It was pretty same-ol, same-ol, except for the fire department's booth. All they were selling was roast beef sandwiches (sliced in front of you) and birch beer. Hand over five buckeroos and you got yourself a meal. Not a complicated operation and they were making some good money.
As you can see by the photo, we passed the local paint store with the sign "Buy a gallon; Get a Chicken"... no idea what that means!
Afterwards, we hung out at Colonial Park in Franklin. I love that place... it's like a bit of heaven on earth.

Hungry for Hungarian?
We ate in the Hungarian Boy Scout Hall. Food was good, especially the spicy Gulyas (Also in the photo are stuffed cabbage rolls with rye bread). But no A/C made it a bit stuffy... we should have had dinner at the new Athletic Hall. We did have dessert there. Palacsinta (apricot jam smeared on a crepe) and walnut cake (which tasted just like the walnut cake at the Greek Festival).
