After Winter Storm Nemo hit, Boston started to show signs of life on Sunday. It helped there was sunshine and the temperature seemed to increase by fifteen degrees overnight. I left the confines of room 536 to see what was happening out of doors.
Most everything was still closed except the occasional Starbucks and thankfully my local Wholefoods. The metro was still stopped, museums still empty and it was up to the proprietors to decide if they wanted to reopen.
I was completely unprepared in the footwear department and lucked out as Charlie had given me one of his (many) scarves as I left NYC, the stylish Bostonians post-Blizzard wardrobe is Hunter Wellingtons and leggings. By the end of my walk I had wet running shoes and my wool socks needed a day and a half to dry out!
Here are some some of the shots from around the Back Bay- the area where I stayed.
Little Nemo followed me to Edinburgh, the day after I got back we had some ‘snow’ a light dusting probably about 2 centimetres, it was gone by the afternoon as the rain had moved in.
After almost a week in the U.S., I arrived in Boston last Monday, I was going to be joined by my mom, but my amazing grandmother passed away and my mom quickly had other priorities. I still had the pleasure of spending a week in Boston and then some more time.
I popped out to enjoy the scenery of the city. It was a sunny day and Boston Common was sun-dappled and very chilly. Can’t you just see the cold?
I enjoyed a birthday meal at Atlantic Fish Co. where I enjoyed the Maine Lobster Roll, it was delicious, so good in fact, I went back to Atlantic Fish Co. for some lump crab, where they put it into a sandwich with brie cheese and pistachio pesto. How could I make this at home- how do they perfectly grill the brioche?
