Jim and I took a ride to Boston last weekend for a great day! He has been wanting to take me to a restaurant in the South End named The Beehive. Their jazz brunch goes until 3pm! I guess people sleep later in the city.
We shared a carafe of 14 Hands Cabernet Savignon. Wine at noon on a Saturday is a wonderful thing!
This fabulous painting was next to us. It looks like these cute kids are sharing their first kiss in the Fall. I love the untied shoelaces!
The musicians were next to us too!
This fabulous chandelier was above us!
Outside The Beehive is this tunnel sculpture. One of the things I love about cities is the random art and sculptures that are placed for the public to enjoy!
Then we drove over towards the harbor and scored finding a parking garage for $10 all day on the weekend!
This cool tunnel is part of the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park.
The Tall Ships come to town once a year but I believe this one is a city fixture.
We squeezed our way through the Farmer’s Market. I was shocked how inexpensive the produce was!!! The same pint of strawberries I saw in the grocery store that morning cost a third less at the Farmer's Market!
Boston’s North End is the Italian neighborhood with amazing restaurants. This is a residential section that is lit up at night.
There is a Feast every weekend here in the summer. I feel bad for these residences!
We walked over to Fanuel Hall which is bascially a Tourist Trap and a great place for people watching. There are tons of shops and street performers. It reminds me a lot of Covent Garden in London so maybe it was fashioned after that.
We watched this guy balancing on a ladder for a little bit. It was anti-climatic so we left!
Boston would not be Boston without a monument to Paul Revere!
It was a warm day so the water parks were in use!
The children were loving it (and I think the parents too)!
Next week I will post A Day Trip to Boston Part II which will be architectural photos.
New this week is beading wire in bronze and gunmetal finishes! Available here!
I hope you enjoyed this peek into Boston! Have a great week! ~Val
