Images of Boston:

Here are some interesting and beautiful things I spotted on our trip.

From the Public Garden, the weirdly touching Ether Monument (I don't know if that's what it's called. That's what we called it):

Close-up of inscription:

Another statue in the Garden, this one complete with bananas and apples:

I am nutty for metal! Look at this, from the foot of the food-laden statue:


Here is a post finial from the fence around the Garden. Insanely gorgeous!

A weeping willow that we sat under every morning with our coffee:

This was a lamp over a residence door in Beacon Hill:

Also from Beacon Hill, some of the last remaining glass brought over from Europe on the first ships to the New World. Something chemical in the air made the glass turn purple.

Interesting grafitti (from the Duck tour) and a post that looks like a little alien:

Here is probably the best meal I had in Boston, a reuben and a cider at The Sevens pub. Heavenly.

Can you tell I loved walking around this great city? Tomorrow, baseball in Boston, in all its forms.

pack me in the suitcase next time.

the pop heard around the ballpark. that looked painful and he was brave tryign to play it off but you know channel 3,6, & 10 kept playing the footage. gotta love the local news.

ooooh! saturday i scored two skeins of navy blue sky alpacas alpaca & silk. 146 yds per skein and i've got like 135-140 yds of the light pink from a previous project. any suggestions? and this lady came in pissed off at the spider's web shawl in VLT. she was really frustrated but lucia was there and calmed her down and i told her i'd write out the instructions & email them to her. it was that they show one section and they didn't say (cuz they assumed everyone would know) to knit it 3 or 6 times.

lucia called me a lace maven. tee hee.

jjp - you ARE a lace maven!! For the BSA&S, perhaps a little fair isle project, n'est-ce pas?? A divine hat? Some perfect gloves??

cg - it was nice (and odd) that they were both lined up in the same picture.
