Welcome to Fall

I took a few crane-your-neck, touristy photos this weekend, because this weather (happy first day of fall!) is so lovely. We Bostonians know better than to take good weather for granted…

Newburyport

I went up to Newburyport with a friend for a few hours this afternoon. I forgot what a pretty town it was; I hadn’t been there for years (maybe 6 or 7?). It was also a picture-perfect New England summer day.

Rainy Walk on the Freedom Trail

Took a little time today to play tourist in my hometown.

The Robert Gould Shaw Memorial (it really should be the 54th Memorial…)

oldstatehouse
The Old State House.
Here they read a copy of the Declaration of Independence after it arrived from Philadelphia (July 18, 1776). Locals tore down the lion and unicorn (symbols of British monarchy) that same day; they weren’t replaced on the facade until 1882.

constitution
The beautiful U.S.S. Constitution, known for her role in the War of 1812.
