I cheated. At the Boston Science Museum,

They had these huge images of the
National Parks.
Wanted to see how well they would come out.

Three Of Us At The Boston “New England Aquarium”, Sunday, May 22, 2016.

The three of us went to Boston (Chinatown) on Sunday morning for Dim Sum at ‘China Pearl‘. The last time we had Dim Sum was February 22, 2016, on Chinese New Year. There was a discussion as to what we should do next. I wanted to go to the Science Museum since we haven’t been in at least 4 years. So did Devanee. Teischan wanted to go to the Aquarium. We had been in the last 3 years, but she tends to forget. But we acquiesced. It proved to be very rewarding. We used to have Membership and maybe we should again.

Teischan joined the club in taking pictures with her Android Tri mini-pad. That was cool. All 3 of us taking pictures. See below. We, as was a given, took in an i-Max too. ‘Humpback Whales’. Given that I have over 3oo images, not counting those taken by Devanee and Teischan, I will try and post some over the coming days.

After getting foiled at the stupid Manchester Science Museum yesterday, we were at a loose end. Deanna suggested that we go to the Huge ‘Goodwill’ store they have on Rte 3, close to Merrimack. So I cut across town and got there. Yes, we then, and Deanna will claim that it was mainly me, proceeded to spent 4 times what it would have cost at the museum. I still felt kind of guilty that the kids didn’t get to go to the museum — though they did get a (as usual) very nice lunch at the ‘Red Arrow Diner’ — and even got to sit and eat with a local, business ‘VIP’. It was a good lunch.

The kids, as ever, wanted to go to another restaurant — but, Teischan didn’t want to go to “Applebee’s” because we had just been their on Tuesday (in Tilton). So, I am driving back on Rte 28 thinking where to go. I was thinking of stopping at “Dominicks” (near Barnstead) where we had eaten a few times before. Then I sailed around the circle and was proceedings along Rte 28 when I drove past the Circle Restaurant.

We had had breakfast there before. I always thought it was only open for breakfast and lunch. But, as I was driving past I saw cars and lights. There was no traffic, so I pulled a U.

Glad we went. It was fun. It was good. It was cheap — especially the red wine at $2.75 a glass! I had two and got Deanna to drive home.

Warm place — in all aspects. Very friendly. Sense of fun.

Good, decent food. Nothing pretentious. Prices just right. Kids liked it.

Since I am off carbs, I had the meat loaf and a salad. It was good. That they don’t charge $6 to $12 for a glass of house wine definitely appealed to me. I even commended them on it. Even at that they are making a profit — since we are here talking ‘no name’ house wine, that they can buy in 5 gallon boxes for $12.99. Bravo. [By the way, I have lost 10 pounds in a month. Deanna is livid.]

They are on my list, and as such we will go back.

Google Maps 'street view'. It must have been dusk when they drove by.

Science Museum At Manchester, NH Was Anticlimactic and Disappointing.

It was school vacation for Teischan this week and as we had gone to Boston just last week, we decided to stay local. We heard about the robotic dinosaur exhibit at the adjacent Millyard Museum (when we were at our wonderful optometrist, Dr. Eakin, on Tuesday) and decided to make an afternoon/evening at the Science Center. We had a bunch of things to do in Manchester, including having a leisurely lunch at our favorite ‘Red Arrow‘. We got to the museum around 3:40 pm expecting to stay there till about 6:30 — and then go for dinner. As we were parking Devanee saw a sign that said that it closes at 4 pm. I didn’t believe that. We went in. Both the exhibit and the museum do indeed close each weekday at 4 pm. That is ludicrous. The Boston ‘Museum of Science‘ stays open till 9pm.

4pm, daily, for a museum is so, so provincial. So country bumpkinish. I couldn’t believe it. In Manchester. It is another sad joke.

I was disgusted. And that is it. Not going back there again. Wasn’t very impressed any way. To say it was small is an understatement.

I am a Granite State Ambassador (GSA). I really am interested in enhancing NH’s tourist worth. Stuff like this just doesn’t help.
