  1. I enjoyed reading about the places recommended for writers to travel over and explore while on vacation. I want to add another place to the list. It’s the Montague Bookmill in Montague, Massachusetts. The Bookmill is where my creative thoughts comes alive and I find myself in the mood to make coherent words on paper. I also enjoy eating the delicious food at The Lady Killigrew Cafe. All of the sandwiches are served with a fresh salad and you have excellent choices to make for a beverage of coffee, wine or beer. I highly recommend the Bookmill that’s located at one of the oldest sites in Montague, MA.
