Hi from Boston! And a big THANK YOU to TayTay :-)))
We are leaving the Boston area today for Cape Cod after spending a wonderful day in Boston yesterday, thanks to the most amazing tour guide you could wish for: TayTay. :-) Thanks so much, Tay, for this great visit. We immediately fell in love with Boston and are sure that we'll come back for more exploring.

TayTay, we've decided to stay in Manchester with you until Sunday. I'll PM GV to let her know that she doesn't have to change the bookings. It was a pleasure meeting you and I can't wait to see you again and meet the other ladies on Friday.

1. Hey there!
So glad you had fun with Tay in Boston. Isn't she super?
Sorry I haven't been around much, I've been out of town on business and busy since then catching up (We painted a school for the Urban League yesterday, and our cutie new mayor was there. I'll post pictures if I can find them.)
I have three suites reserved for Fri and Sat night. As best I know, there are six of us on Friday and four (?) on Saturday. I'll need to know if anyone else is staying either Friday or Saturday night.

Isn't Boston awesome? Next to Pittsburgh, my fave city in the US.
Enjoy Cape Cod (also awesome).

:-)

See you soon.

2. We'll stay for the two nights
I just sent you a PM. Boston is great! It's so European and American at the same time. The perfect mix. See you on Friday!

3. Glad you had fun.
You picked a nice time of year to visit.

BTW anybody going to the New Hampshire Jefferson-Jackson dinner. I convinced my wife to go. She is bringing her best friend as well as Gil's girlfriend (some of you met Gil this summer at Fanueil Hall).

What a spectacular fall day to go roaming around Boston. We have not yet had a killing frost so the flower planters (boxes) on Beacon Hill and the lovely Victorian layout of the Public Gardens were just ideal for a nice walk. Another week and the place will look much different. (On the down side, that cold I was getting is in fuller bloom as well. Much chicken soup will be needed for this week to get ready for Friday.)

I met Europegirl at her hotel and then we drove to a T stop and then took public transportation and commenced to see what we could see in about 3 hours in Boston. We saw a lot of wicked old stuff, (Colonial era buildings) and then merely old stuff (like the elegant townhouses in the pic posted up thread.) I think the star of the day was the incredible weather, it was just perfect for a stroll.

BTW, my skills as tour guide improved. We went to Beacon Hill because we only had about 3 hours total in town so we looped from the T stop, past the Commons, up Beacon Hill and then meandered among the lovely setting there. Somedays it's hard to believe that you're in a major American city when you are on the Hill. It was so quiet yesterday. Amazing to think that just two blocks from major intersections and all that traffic is such a lovely location. Pumpkins, lovely brick townhouses with their iron balconies, flower boxes still in bloom and great company to see it all in, what more could you ask for on a fall afternoon? I regret we weren't able to stroll around the North End, but again, we only had 3 hours. (We passed a wedding at St. Pauls Chapel going up Beacon Hill and two wedding parties getting pictures taken at Public Gardens. It really was a lovely take.)

Ahm, yup, a certain Senator's house is in that pic, under a flag. But we didn't really set out to see that house, we set out to see what parts of Boston, in terms of architecture and design, are just pleasing. We all decided that parts of Boston are like a mini-London in terms of it's neighborhoods. BTW, across the street from where this pic was taken, we saw several girls in riding gear on medium size ponies. Right there, in the city, on a lovely Sat afternoon. 'twas nice.

Oh, we also saw Faneuil Hall. Cuz, we have to see Faneuil Hall. It's become rather famous in this group of late. What a great time!
