Harry Potter Exhibition

Yesterday, Amy took me to visit the Boston Museum of Science and the Harry Potter Museum.  Needless to say I was excited and a bit worried.  I was excited because I am a fan of J. K. Rowling and the World of Magic that she has created.  Maybe not as much of a fan as Amy but I rank high. 

I was a bit worried because of my health.  It had been a long time since I have been on a major trip as a round trip to Boston and more than an hour walking through the museum.  I enjoyed to the whole day.  Yes, I was tired and a bit stiff and shaky by the time we got in the car to return to RI but I wouldn't have missed it for the world.  And the company was the best. The weather was cool but partly cloudy making the drive up and back great.

I discovered that I should not shut myself away from the world with the excuse that I can not do things because of my health. Yes, I will have good and some not so good days, maybe even a couple of lousy days but I can't let them stop me.  I must go out into the world and explore whenever possible and enjoy life.

The exhibit was fantastic.  If it comes near you, don't hestitate to go and see it.  My only regret was that we couldn't take pictures in the exhibit and they didn't have a couple of things outside the hall where we could mark our visit with personal pictures.  So there are no pictures of me sitting in Hagrid's chair or Amy tossing the quaffle thorugh the hoop. We both pulled up the mandrake root. 

Now i can't wait until the next movie to come out.  I guess I will have to reread the books and rewatch the movies until then.

A few years ago I traveled to Boston to see the Lord of the Rings Exhibit at the Museum of Science and it was fantastic. We loved it so much we went again the next morning before heading home. I bet the HP exhibit is similar.
