So we had the most wonderful week in Wellesley, we were greeted with a gathering and a lobster supper, being a bit squeamish about my food, it was a bit of a challenge but I did manage my dissection although I wasn’t sucking out the crevices like my instructor! During the week when we weren’t teaching or doing the show we were able to walk round the amazing grounds, made more
stunning by the changing colours of the autumn leaves. The show went down really well and one night we were invited to join the members of the Shakespeare Society in Shakespeare’s House, who would have thought Shakespeare used to live in Wellesley! Anyway we had a lovely evening. The ladies of the society are putting on their own version of Romeo and Juliet on the 14th-17th and 21st-24th of November, I wish we could be there to see it and hope it is a great success.
After Wellesley we headed off for The US Naval Academy, Annapolis. I have to say it wasn’t my favourite journey, to start off we were delayed for over an hour, the reason being bad weather on route, we managed to avoid most of it but there was one point in the journey that was particularly bumpy, and I spent most of that bit with my head in my hands chanting ‘ I don’t like this! I don’t like this! ‘ until I was reminded by Jack who was sitting across the aisle from that ‘nobody liked it’ – sorry to everyone who was in hearing range!!
Anyway we made it and had another great week. We only had 2 shows in the beautiful theatre on Campus but we had the most amazing reception, we were nearly blown over backwards by the applause and cheers at the end and considering a lot of them had been up since 5 in the morning, nobody I could see had fallen asleep so we have done our job!!
