Apparently he founded this little school?
It's poetry in motion ... SCIENCE!
Even the afternoon light is better there.
Personally, I'd rather go to McKenzie's.
Sadly, this is the first library that I have not been able to get into. You need a student ID to enter! When Nate Street goes to Harvard, he will proudly march his state-school educated mother into this library. Of course he's not going to be a Harvard, but a Princeton man.
Public transport typically makes me nervous, but the T was nice and clean. I still like my car better though.
I went to Newberry Street and all I got was this teal Miata.
Excellent shopping there, particularly "Second Time Around," a high-end designer consignment shop. Me likey.
I think "Hugh Shaw, Harvard Adjunct Professor of Mortgageoloy" fits very well.
One of many
We were surprised that the leaves were still so colorful in mid-November. Being from the South, these kind of colors delight me.
Oh wait, I went to the University of South Carolina.
Was in my graduating class at Clearwater Central Catholic ('94) and the only one to go to Harvard. At our 10 year class reunion, every other story had to do with Harvard and those good times on the wrestling team. Hmmm ....
Note the flags
Where all the cool two-year olds of Cambridge hang out -- holla!
Which actually tastes better in its hometown. This was after our delicious meal at Legal Seafod. The Cape Cod oysters rocked.
Also had the ice cream bon-bons as recommended by Arthur Frommer. Out of this world.
It looked like this "family" was comprised of child models posing for a New England tourism brochure. "Look, here we are with some true patriots, enjoying the sights and sounds of colonial Boston, mum!"
This did give me good ideas about making Nate wear a funny hat when he visits Boston.
Where the colonists decided to revolt. Things sound really historical when you put an "e" on the end of them. Also the place where Margaret Sanger was not allowed to debate birth control. Seems eerily similar to the year 2007.
Plaque at statue that commemorates the Irish coming to Boston.
We had only planned on stopping by select sites, but the 2.2-mile trail was filled with so many fascinatign stops we went to pretty much all of them. I highly recommend the audio tour, which brought to life stops from Paul Revere's House to the USS Constitution.
Me and Sam Adams! This is also where John Edwards conceded defeat in that election we don't like to talk about.
Shout out for the Catholics!
A spot on the Freedom Trail
Sculpture at the Old North Church
It really was as fun as it looks.
Shaw lead an infantry group comprised of African-Americans during the Revolutionary War.
The red line of the Freedom Trail
And many others, including those from the Franklin family and the Hubbard family, as in "Old Mother Hubbard" tales.
Turns out that he was a complete failure as a beermaker.
I knew it!
When I first saw this, I didn't read the nearby plaques, and had no idea that it reflected the Irish struggle. Ignorantly, I thought it had to do with the struggles of Native Americans. When I found out that it was about the Irish I did a double take.
