As with Longfellow House and Alcott House, we were forewarned not to tarry in the giftshop, so we didn't. We hurried back to the bus, anticipating that we would soon see Walden Pond, but if we drove past it, the tour guide must have been too busy talking about something else to point it out. We missed it, as well as a few other points on the tour. As we left the Concord Museum for Louisa May Alcott's house, we were made aware that our tour was not on schedule. Since this was the first run for this tour, I imagine it will be revised or managed differently in the future.
