When we were in Boston for the 4th of July, Brian and I woke up the next morning while the kids were still slumbering and hit the streets of the revolution and walked the Freedom Trail. Who said 45 minutes away from your house isn’t totally exciting? I am still excited after 11 years!
With only iPhone in hand, I managed to be enthralled by the breathtaking architecture that only Beantown holds.
In the morning, when it is silent and the city is barely awake, you will find Chinese exercising on the Boston Common, you will hear calmness on the street and you will view beauty in the concrete jungle.
Let’s take a visual tour today!
I took a little break from shooting doors this year but the past two weeks I am back on. I am doing a separate door post this week just to highlight them. I Love them!
Nothing was more thrilling than being right where our country started and freedom was fought. I pondered for a moment if anyone even seemed to care as we all shuffled around the city that morning?
When we got to our hotel room the day prior for the Boston Pops and Fireworks, Hillary flipped on the television and episode 6 of John Adams was playing. We both freaked out and took an hour just to watch it. We, including Brian all recommitted to rewatching that entire series, since it was one of my favorite all time books.
I decided that I am having my next date with Brian at this restaurant at the Old City Hall, sure it is a steak house but Brian said it is to die for. And surely we will die clogging our arteries, but I loved the outdoor summer setting right on the trail.
Later that afternoon, I shot this amazing shot, if I do say so myself…. from my sunroof as Brian was driving home 50 miles an hour over the bridge.
We walked down Newbury Street, where shopping is at it’s finest. I said for the bazillionth time I wish we owned a house on the neighboring Beacon street. We are only about 8 million dollars shy of purchase.
We stopped for a moment at the State Capitol and took a moment to catch our breath literally.
We looked at churches and ate a smoothie for breakfast.
Best of all, we checked off another 20th Year anniversary goal and it only including walking and our two feet….something we have been faithfully doing for as long as we have known each other. It is therapy, it is reality, it is the best hour of my day every time we do it. And we didn’t even have to go far! Perfect morning- perfect date!
