Living in Maine, makes me lucky for two reasons. Vacationland being number one. No need to say more on number one. Rolling in at two is how I can drive two hours south from Portland, and I’m cruising with my windows down in Boston. Boston being like a much bigger Portland, I instantly feel right at home. Also might I just say I’m killer at aggressive driving/merging with true Bostonians. So living so close to Boston, my husband and I decided to take a day trip to stroll the streets, and enjoy all that Boston has to offer.
We stopped off at the infamous Acorn St, to capture only half of the beauty that Beacon Hill has to offer. Dreaming of what it would be like to have one of these townhomes. Excuse me while I drool.
From there we walked what is basically one block over to Boston Common, and the gorgeous gardens which just seem to never end. It’s surreal being surrounded by grand amounts of nature, yet overlooking it all, the city. Feels so calming, yet comforting being so close to everything.
Here I am at the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum, which opened in 1903. The museum holding all of Isabella’s personal pieces from her collection of art, except for some. Thirteen works of art, including a Rembrandt, and Vermeer. Thieves in 1990, stole 13 works of art from the collection, and have yet to be found. All adding up to $500 million dollars. What still is in tact, are the most spectacular views/works of art I’ve ever seen.
Walking the streets, we stumbled upon many works of art, including this one for the Boston Ballet. We also found light up swing sets in the park Lawn on D.
We ended our trip walking to Boston Harbor to watch the sunset on the dock. Need I say more? Look at that view! What is better than enjoying your loved ones company, while staring at this. I wouldn’t have asked to finish off a beautiful day after walking 24,000 steps.
