We attended a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park our last night in Boston. We left during the 6th inning because of an incoming storm. We got back to the hotel just as the rain started to come down. In sheets. For hours. The game was suspended in the 10th inning in a 4-4 tie. Glad we left. The car was parked outside so the valet staff could watch it. I was relieved when I opened it up this morning and my efforts to waterproof the car had paid off. It wasn’t dry, but it wasn’t the disaster I had before.

I was terrified of driving out of downtown Boston. It turns out to have been no big deal. Got on the freeway in just a couple of minutes. We were in Ogunquit 90 minutes later.

We got to open road and I set the cruise control. Several minutes later I tried to disengage it by tapping the brakes. Nothing… just kept cruising. I realized that I must have no brake lights. Sure enough, a little diagnosing at the hotel has revealed a bad stop light switch. At home, I could get this switch from 4 different places 10 minutes from house. In Ogunquit, it will be a 1 hour round trip to a store that carries them! We aren’t in California any more! {CAPTION}
