WHICH WAY DOWN AT BOSTON’S WHARF – Marilyn Armstrong

Which Way Challenge: 1-3-2019

Which way is ever so much more complicated when you get involved with ships that have real rigging and masts and stuff. Nothing looks more beautiful on the water than a multi-masted ship … and nothing can be more complicated to find your way around! I’ve heard that submarines are really difficult, but the only submarine I was on was one of those 60-foot long hot dogs they use to look at the fish in the Caribbean. The big ones are for the military — and I’m not one of them!

The wharf is the oldest area of Boston and the one undergoing the most change right now

On the road to Skowhegan. Hi Bette!

A tiny, very old road that actually doesn’t go anywhere, at least not anymore.

    • THAT depends on who you ask. They have installed a SUPER expensive shopping and living area in what used to be old shanty fish and clam joints. I liked the old Boston better. The new one is not the kind of place Garry and I would have gone even when we were working and had the money. Overpriced everything, especially parking! I’m sure there are rich people who think it’s very “them,” but it definitely isn’t US.

      • Oh no! That’s not what I call positive either. Why does everywhere install shops πŸ˜•

      • I’m with you on the old wharf which smelled of character. It always had the feel of living history. The new version is bland with little “feel” for its past.
        I remember the pre Faneuil Hall days in Boston. It was all fish shantys. You could see the fishermen bringing in their hauls and bargaining for prices. Sometimes there were genuine fights with fish flying all over the place. It gave City Hall an authentic odeur.
