Back from Boston

Took a quick trip to Boston to see our daughter. Have been many times now, but there is always something fun to do. On this visit, we went to the top of the Prudential Building which gives you a panoramic view of Boston. A self-guided tour points out all the highlights. Seeing the steeple of the old North Church (made famous during the Revolutionary War) on the edge of the modern Financial District is quite something.

Took an afternoon to go house or should I say condo hunting. Our daughter and her husband rent right now, but will soon be looking to buy. Property is quite expensive, but we saw several good options. Many of the buildings were quite old and had been turned into condos retaining many of the architectural details. Others were more modern, and they offered their pluses also.

It's always such a pleasure to visit Boston. We did keep our New York Giants hats at home as the Super Bowl had only taken place a few days before. No sense ticking anybody off!!

On the way back home, we stopped at WEBS Yarn Store. Their Web site is, and that address alone tells you they are a premiere yarn shop. The back room is all discounted yarn, and you literally don't know where to look first. Got a little bit of yarn for my Prayer Shawl Group, and also picked up some yarn suitable for hooking. If you ever find yourself in central Massachusetts, look them up. It is well worth the visit.

Oh that yarn looks heavenly. Our church group also does prayer shawls for seniors as a ministry. JB
