Bonus post today to catch up on photos from out east

 In Boston I enjoyed the combination of old buildings and new buildings and how they worked to blend them together.

One of my favorites was the image of the old church reflected in the modern glass construction of the skyscraper across the street.

The memorial in this church yard has over 6,000 dog tags hanging to reflect the men and women who have died in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Both beautiful and eerie.

This is the Old Ironsides in Boston.  

We didn't tour the boat but rather stopped to use the bathroom facilities near it. 

It's the first time I've ever had to remove items for x-ray like in the airport to use a bathroom.

Long Live the Queen of Boston


  1. That's a gorgeous photo of the church reflection in the windows. I've never seen this memorial with the dog tags, but then I rarely ever get to Boston. Unless someone offers to take me, I don't drive anywhere near Boston. The last time I drove home from Boston, I was lost and made a U turn on the Tobin Bridge. A definite No No. Have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  2. The boat looks amazing, I would like to have a ride there. Next time that I have my vacations I will go to Boston.
