Boston Ballet in the Park

When I read on Facebook that the Boston Ballet was doing a photo shoot at the Boston Public Garden, I knew where I would be spending my Thursday afternoon.


Once again I took public transportation into the city and I am glad I did. The ride in was smooth on the Orange and Green lines of the T. I was quite a bit early for the event.

Some people had already staked out their spots. This group had a picnic. The girl in the white pants was passing out masks which promoted the upcoming Black Swan production of the Boston Ballet.



It was white on one side and black on the reverse. The kids loved them. I wore mine too, briefly.


Again, the weather was perfect as it had been all week. The swan boats were fully employed as there were many tourists enjoying the Public Garden on this day.


After posing a bit on the other side of the lagoon, the dancers took a little ride on the Swan Boat. Their costumes were unbelievably gorgeous.


And the dancers were unbelievably gorgeous! What a setting for a phot…

Tourist in my own town- a trip to Quincy Market Boston

The vacation continues and I decided it would be fun to be a tourist in my own town. On Saturday, I took a trip to Quincy Market in Boston. Actually I live just north of Boston but I still call Boston my home.

I took the subway into the city, we call our public transport the T.  It was a great place to people watch. The young woman sitting across from me had a huge bag from the Gingerbread Construction Company, a muffin shop just 5 minutes from my home. The two couples next to me and across the aisle were taking photos of each other. The two young women had numerous visible tattoos but their boyfriends did not. An overweight boy wore a T shirt that stated body by corned beef. Just about 5 stops later  I was at the Haymarket station and within a stone's throw of Quincy Market.


Street performers are on every corner around the Market. The first group was very entertaining. These guys should try out for Cirque de Soleil. Amazing dancers and jumpers. They liked audience participation …
