You get your accomodation, you get a pool/s, you get entertainment/kids clubs if you want. you can come and go as you please. You can cook or eat out. Plus you can sit out (or in) whilst small child goes to sleep. Ok, so it's camping. You have to do your own washing up. But for me it works.
Problem....the week we want to book was the last week most of the parks were open. Hmmm would all the facilities be available?? plus Britanny has had an issue of toxic seaweed on the beaches and they were what we were going for. So, Brittany went by the by and we ahd the week at home (See previous blog post).So, where does that leave us???
- Me sulking "but I want a holiday"
- "if we don't go abroad this year with little man, we never will"
- "I really fancy new England in the Fall"
- hubby who has been very quite up till now "ok"
- Me "errr what"
- Him "that sounds like a great idea"
- Me - stunnned silence

So, I am frantically looking at trying to book us a holiday in Boston. But it is sooooo expensive. A friend has suggested that we look at residence inns or similar as they can have a seperate sleeping/living area so we could have a little bit of comfort whilst someone goes to bed earlier than us. Problem is that most are out of town. So, do we go in town, pay more and use public transport or go out of town, pay less but get a hire car??? Hmmm tough one especially as I don't know the area.
Twitter came up trumps today though, as I tweeted my dilema and the Charles Hotel offered me a very good twitter rate. It looks very nice and convenient, and we can book two ajoiining rooms, but still prob far too pricey for us - haven't dared ask my bh yet.
One thing for sure though, wherever we stay, we are going to have to fly premium economy as hubby will need the leg room (he is 6ft 8). It will cost more, but I think we are going to have to do it for his comfort. So, that's any budget blown before we have even taken off! Defiantely means the room will have to cost less......
Any advice on places to visit, stay, eat in Boston all greatfully recieved....I need this holiday to work else I don't think we will have one until littley has flown the nest! Off to look at hotels again now - wish me luck.

With Czech glass beads, Swarovski crystals and hilltribe silver.
I just love blues and greens and these gorgeous beads remind me of the sea as the clouds pass over head making it change colour. Turquoise in the bright sun with the clouds creating darker and deeper colours as the skitter overhead in the fresh sea breeze.
Delphinium - necklace, bracelet and earrings featuring stunning lampwork beads by Isabelle Anderson with freshwater pearls, rose quartz and hilltribe silver.
These lovelies and more will be up on the website in the next few days.

We caught 13 of the lovelies and my son had the best time ever. Catching crabs is ever so exciting when you are 3 and a bit. This is grandma showing little man how to hold a crab - you would never get me doing that!
And here is one of them making a bit back to freedom off the pontoon - as far as I know he is a shore crab. Our fisherman catch them for bait, but the french apparently eat them. I am far happier with them back in the water and no where near my toes!
