We're home from our trip and I've got the post-fun-trip blues. We had such a nice time in Boston and enjoyed all its flowering-treed glory. This morning I ventured out for a short run. I had my Boston map in my hand and I almost got hit by two different cars, so it's not like I was looking like a local or anything, but I did find my way to Newburry street and ran there for a while before landing on Commonwealth Ave and running up and down the tree-lined narrow park that goes for about 6 city blocks. It is so lovely to run in a new place, especially this place. I was going through my usual "I want to live here" stage that I always go through when I visit someplace cool.
I didn't run with my camera but when we drove past the park again on our way to the Boston Commons, I took a few shots out the car window, so these don't really do it justice but you get the idea.
We spent our last couple hours in the sunshine at Boston Commons and Boston Gardens.
I just asked the kids what they liked best about Boston:
Skyler: "the hotel pool, the aquarium, and the hotel room."
Reed: "feeding the ducks, seeing the diver in the tank, the creatures, the sharks, and all of it. Everything."
Me too, Reed. I liked everything.
Okay, Maine, you can warm up for good now. I have a big, fat run in the morning and it's pretty chilly out there.
