Trip to Boston and Martha's Vineyard: Preliminary stats

Carole and I just got back from our trip to Boston and Martha's Vineyard. Plane leaving Boston was delayed, which had the advantage of fewer people on the flight but the disadvantage of getting us home too late to do much of anything but collapse. I haven't started processing the photos or getting the mail from the Post Office or setting my internal clock to Central Time. I'll have a longer report, or at least pictures, soon. In the meantime:
