Do not miss the Wenham Museum special train exhibits! I think Arden could spend every day here looking at the 15+ giant train-scapes in gauges G-Z with buttons the kids can press to make the trains go. These are amazing and even feature a small torch-wielder cutting up old steam train parts with new diesel trains whizzing by. Downstairs there is a play area with a table of lincoln logs, playhouse, costumes, store stocked with 1950s play food items, typewriter, and rotary phone, among other things. They have book signings too and we were able to meet local author Kristin Kladstrup and have her sign our copy of The Gingerbread Pirates.
We thought the Edgewater Cafe had gone away, but have rediscovered it! It’s hiding next to JD and Meyers on Lexington Ave in Magnolia. One of the first ethnic restaurants in the area, it serves up Mexican and drinks from the pub.
Stoney Cove, on 128 near exit 13, is a place that I always thought of as just a pier for fishing folks, but it’s actually a 53-acre nice walk along the river and through a mature woodland. Here’s a glimpse from an overcast day last weekend:

The Azorean Restaurant is delicious with authentic Portuguese and Azorean dishes! I especially love the tapas tower with 6 dishes for $30. Pictured is the garlicky shrimp, salted cod cakes, red pepper boiled potatoes, fish-stuffed mushrooms, calamari, and Molho Vilao haddock.
When you’ve just been stuck inside for a week with the flu, you need a warm happy place with lots of healthy comfort food and warm lovely people. Dom’s Trattoria in Beverly Farms looks like a pizza joint from the outside, but stop in any day and mouthwatering specials fill the case, in addition to their extensive menu. Angela and Ralph own the place and Joyce is the cheery welcoming committee! Angela also does a cooking show on local cable access and they have a healthy school lunch program (lucky kids). All the ingredients are fresh, local, and you won’t find any high fructose corn syrup or other nasties. They carry the local soda Spindrift made right here in MA. She even does creative subbing with whole wheat flour in dishes and a full serving of cauliflower puree for half of the cheese in the mac’n cheese for a healthy twist. (Creamy and delicious – you wouldn’t know – that sneaky Angela!) Most everything is available wheat and gluten free too! Stop in, say hello, and trust me – order the special!
Check out their video on Boston.com. Photos of Angela and the wee one’s clean plate club membership stamp of approval, Ralph and Joyce, some delicious food including their awesome quiche and tart which will spoil you for all others, cheesecake in the case before dinner and by the time we finished dinner (it was light and fluffy), homemade bread and free apples, menu and cookies!
PS: Joey, add them to your free WiFi list when you get a chance.
