Boston: Part II

Boston was not all torrential rain. Let me tell you about some of our drier moments.

Wow is this city difficult to navigate! Even with GPS helping us, there are so many tunnels and bridges and odd intersections throughout.

It took us twice as long as expected to get to brunch at Scup's, but the delicious food was worth it. And even more interesting were the quirky art installations all around the Boston Harbor Shipyard where the restaurant was located.









The public transportation in Boston was much easier to navigate than the roads, and so we opted to keep the car parked for the rest of the weekend.

While roaming around the city, we traveled through the gas-lit neighborhood of Charleston. We had already been walking past many quaint historic homes when we spotted an open house. We explained to the agent that we weren't really in the market for his half-million, late 1800's home, but that we just wanted to look inside. He happily obliged and even guided us up to the roof top terraces for a better view of the city. Thanks, Duncan!

We continued on our way to the Bunker Hill Monument and braved the 294 steps to the top.



Vee-dee-oh

Continuing down the Freedom Trail, we made a brief stop at the U.S.S. Constitution.





At that point, we needed to head back to the waterfront for our previously scheduled boat tour. And you know what happens next.

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
