Ruby Tuesday Goes to Boston

I went back over my old files to March when, on a sunny but cool, crisp March day, I visited my daughter who attends Boston University. On these visits, we walk, talk, shop, talk, dine and talk some more. And as always, I take my camera along.  Enjoy!


Getting a good shot of this colorful cyclist, wasn't easily achieved. When he was waiting for the light, there were people and signs in the way and when he took off on green, he flew by me with all the confidence of an urbanite!

(I have since been corrected by my lovely lass that we had, in fact, been taking turns talking to her sister in California. "I stand corrected, albeit while sitting!"

  5. Nice post! I wish you could visit again and again. We had so much fun that weekend.

    My sole complaint is that your caption made it sound like I was on my cell phone just chattering away despite your presence!...I think/hope we were in fact calling Mere together. :-P Love you.

  6. The pictures are wonderful and serve to encourage me not to be fearful of east coast winters when we relocate a bit further north. Boston is only 450 miles from Halifax after all. The photos are wonderful and your daughter is lovely.

  12. Thank you all so much for taking the time to view and comment on my post.

    Anon (who is my daughter, pictured on the cell phone): I have made the correction. Thank you for jogging my failing memory! Love you very much.

    Reg: I love Nova Scotia and I've visited Halifax twice now and hope to visit again in the future. My friend Susan, who also commented on this thread, is moving there this summer or fall. Nova Scotia has become a refuge for my partner and me. It is now difficult for us to miss a summer when we don't visit there.

  14. Ralph, I hope you have wonderful weather for the wedding! What a great place to be married. Boston is such a fun city and so pretty and historical. We are very proud of our state capitol. Well, except for the driving! :-)

    Regarding my daughter - thank you! She is a very good person, too. And obviously detail-oriented! ;-)

  16. Love your comments, "He flew by me with all the confidence of an urbanite!"
    Boston seems to be a cool city, not to modern or too old. What else do I know about Boston,a brilliant shoe shining polish and the Bar Cheers!
