Boston – June / July 2011

Hey now! I got married. It was a whole thing. I had fun. I hope the guests did too. Anytoodles…let’s put up a few pics, eh? Not from the wedding, I don’t really have any yet 🙂 Just a few memories from one of my work trips to Boston, end of June 2011. Welcome Extreme Sailing!

Boston – May 2011

In more immediate terms…we bought a house last week. Ayup. So far, we’ve moved some boxes and painted one wall. We’ve been trying to do more, but apparently “I’ll call on such-and-such day” is code for “haha, no I won’t” from plumbers and electricians. Anyway!

Not quite tourist, not quite home, and not

Most of the more recent ones, I’ve taken few to no photos, but this was my first trip out. It was actually my first trip to Boston in a few years, and I had a really good time, getting a sense of work, and getting to see a lot of friends again. Hanging out in Maine, as you do.

also, trains

i was reading some book the other morning, and a sentence in it just made me desperate to be outside, and even just a little bit away. so i took the commuter rail to gloucester. got off the train, and said “well, the ocean is this way” and walked. did in fact find the ocean, and saw some kids playing on a structure with a big “do not climb” sign painted on. then found the visitor’s center, and grabbed a couple of maps. these maps showed me where dogtown commons were, which is where there used to be some houses
