I'll bet you're wondering where I've been. Boston. Larry had a consulting gig there last Wednesday so I tagged along. What a great city! We stayed in Copley Square which is right in the middle everything. This was the view from our room.
The day Larry had his meeting I rode the T to Windsor Button (thanks to the tip from Grumperina). It was a funky old-timey fabric/craft/yarn shop. They had tons of books and patterns and some fun yarns.
We spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts and walking up and down Newbury Street which has so many fun restaurants and shops. I bought a shirt at Johnny Cupcakes. We spent all day Saturday on the Freedom Trail. On the 2 1/2 mile walk we saw the historic houses, meeting halls and churches where the revolution started. Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church. Very cool.
We walked around Walden Pond,
then spent the rest of the day at Minute Man National Historical Park. There were some living history demonstrations like this Minute Man demonstrating how a musket worked.
The weather was lovely and cool--typical New England autumn. We had a lovely trip.
Oh, and I finished a pair of socks on the plane--woohoo!
