I’ve been in Boston for about 5 months now, and I really love how beautiful this city is.
Let me put that statement into perspective for you, this is the ceiling of the prudential center, the building where John works. It reminds me of a Philip Johnson—the designer of the glass house—quote: “this is the most expensive wallpaper in the world”.
This Gothic church is right down the street, nestled among modern skyscrapers.
Oh did I mention the Wharf? Boston Harbor has a thriving maritime community. Everything from beautiful sailboats, to yachts and even cruise ships come in and out of Boston Harbor.
John and I are heading home now; on the Salem ferry. It runs through the summer until Oct 31, so we are trying to commute via ferry on every clear day we have left. By this time of year, the 5:30pm commuter ferry pulls away from Boston just as sunset hits.
This next shot is for my father-in-law. He’s a retired pilot, and often reminisces over flying into Logan airport. The runways are on an island settled out in the Harbor, so as the ferry leaves Boston Harbor, planes are taking off and landing over our path.
It takes about an hour to get to Salem. A nice leisurely hour, watching the sunset with a cold beer. Did I mention there is a bar on board? By the time we pull into Pickering Wharf at Salem, it’s almost dark out, and the moon is high. The walk home is crisp; a good ending to a good day.
