A couple of Sundays ago Bob and I, as well as our son Craig and his girlfriend Sami , went to Boston for the afternoon for a little photo shooting session. Even though we only live about 35 miles from Boston we just never go there. I love the city, but somehow we rarely have the time and Bob hates driving in the city.
Most of these pictures were captured on Beacon Hill, originally a neighborhood of Boston Brahmins and Bluebloods, and even now it is horribly pricey, but there are some apartments and some funkier places to live. Sit back and enjoy Bob's photos.
Shops were closed by the time we got to Charles Street, but they are a bit posh for my style and pocketbook anyway. And no, that is not one of us! So back down Charles Street, across Boston Common, through Downtown Crossing (which is horribly unattractive now...when will it be revitalized??) to Post Office Square and the car. Luckily Sami works in Boston and was able to steer us to a cheap garage (on weekends) that was well lit and didn't smell of ...use your imagination here...
Next we will see homes in Providence from the Festival of Historic Houses last weekend while Bob works on those Bermuda pictures for your enjoyment. We are just traveling fools lately!
