Week-end in Boston AUGUST 23-24

It's always fun to play the tourist in your own city. I love that after all these years, we are still able to find new neighborhoods and fun stuff to amuse ourselves with.

Free Saturday afternoon folk music concert at Carson Beach (So Boston) performed by The Western Den, I believe they are or were students at Berkley School of Music. They were talented.

Spectacle Island on the horizon

"The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls...." and bathroom stalls

Canadian Geese taking an ocean dip ?

Taking a break at our favorite tavern, The Atwood in Cambridge.

The TAZA Chocolate Tour was awesome! The chocolate is fabulous! This is not your mother's Hershey chocolate.

Somerville is a unique place...

Need a bumper?

Sunday morning stroll to Long Wharf

Someone had a good time last night......

Aboard the Boston Harbor Island Ferry to Georges Island, home of Fort Warren, seven miles from downtown Boston.

Long Island Head Light

View of Boston from Georges Island

When my boys were young, they loved exploring this fort. There are many dark tunnels, small passage ways and remains of a past that stimulate the imagination. And a few real ghost stories
to make falling asleep troublesome.

Bonus: 1860's baseball game.

ferry back to the mainland

Fort Independence, Castle Island So Boston....I spy the blimp flying over Fenway!
