Swan Boat Summer

Boston Common is more than a park. With the Boston Public Garden adjacent to the common, it forms the green heart of a city that has grown big around the edges, but remains small and cozy at heart.

Friendly ducks, and squirrels will greet you.Friendly people, too. Boston is not New York. It’s got its share of weirdos and crime, but you can talk to strangers; they won’t remain strangers long. Except, maybe leave the Yankees cap back home. Just saying.

Still more neighborhood than metropolis, “The Com” belong’s to everybody in all seasons.

This is summertime, when swan boats circle the pond and sun shines warm.

  1. I absolutely love those pictures of Kaitlin. She is growing up too fast but she’ll always be Gramps’ little girl.

  2. Always wanted to visit Boston. . .still on my desire list! Thought at one time our middle daughter was going to venture outward into that area. . .she loves it, too. Ended up near Miami instead. Much rather it had been Boston. I will make it one day for on my agenda is Maine lobster and a stop in Boston is definitely not out of the way! Love the pictures:>)

    • Boston is a good city to visit. Garry lived there for more than 30 years, I for about a dozen. Sometimes I miss it, especially restaurants and concerts in the park and city hall plaza in the summer. But I love where we are, and we couldn’t stay in that triplex. My back and hips are gone and all those stairs were getting downright painful. We do still visit, though. It’s a human size city: small enough to walk around it, big enough to have something to see.

  3. I remember when we came and visited you guys and we all took a stroll through the commons. Every few feet some person would recognize and greet Garry. We had a good time and still talk about it. Thanks for the memories…
