A recent trip to Boston
At the beginning of April I followed Dan out to Boston; him for a business trip, me for a walking trip. Plus, his work travels overlapped my birthday, so it was sort of a birthday trip, too. After a late arrival in the rain, I spent the next 36 hours letting my feet find their way around this sweet city, wandering into used bookstores (of course), coffee shops (naturally), and pastry shops (a no-brainer really). It couldn’t have been a better way to kick off another year on this fine planet.
I’m allergic to shellfish, but I enjoyed this old sign.
Mike’s Pastry. I would have moved in if they had let me. Sadly, they didn’t go for it.
I’m completely enamored with these homes. Something about this New England architecture really speaks to me. We should all have flower boxes installed at our homes.
Brattle Book Shop. Brattle was established in 1825 and is a fantastic used bookstore. There are three interior levels of used books as well, but something about this outside lot (even in the rain) is ever so charming.
Postcards and prosecco to finish us off, because you don’t always get to have a birthday in Boston.
Thanks for taking a look at this little photo diary!
SIGNED, anya elise
An outdoor bookstore?! How did I not know about that? And a carousel? You are much better at finding cool things in Boston than I am. Cheers! 🙂
Let’s finally go on our trip and discover cool things together! Assuming my 30th-birthday-trip is still on the table. I realize I am now 31… I also realize I haven’t told you where I want to go yet…
