We dined at a local cafe and M had chowder one last time before heading home.
After lunch, we headed to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery to visit Henry, Louisa, and Ralph.
In what is probably a gross invasion of privacy, I read a note that someone had left for Ralph Waldo Emerson. I share it here because I thought it was beautiful and it made me feel things.
We left the cemetery and headed toward the Old North Bridge where we found another old car...this time complete with a pirate skeleton!

We visited with the minuteman...
And saw the dinosaur ducks! Fun fact: when I was in school in England, we had these crazy ugly dinosaur ducks. They were mean looking and aggressive. The Concord dino ducks were the same. I thought they were going to climb into a fisherman's canoe!
Our last stop in Concord was at Walden Pond. We walked around the pond and visited the site of Thoreau's cabin.
People leave notes and stack rocks for Thoreau. I don't know what the rock towers are supposed to mean...they remind me of Blair Witch...remember that?
After we circled the pond, we went for a dip!
Sadly, M had to head home and go back to being a real grown up with responsibilities and a job and stuff. How can I get a job where all I do is travel around with my friends? Because that would be the best job ever. Travels and Adventures forever!
Bright and early the next morning, it was time to send M on her way.

"Look cute," I said.
Okay, okay I get it. I have my ticket. But even if I didn't, I could still pay on my way out. So don't lie to me and tell me otherwise.
