Stroll through this area to catch boating activities and the warrior on 2 feet hit the pavement, great inspirational area for exercise. Or stop in to take a quick few photos of the Boston skyline.

Gloomy day,, nothing going on today. See it often, but today it didnt look like anyone cared to be there. So I kept on driving. Hope it's better next time.

The Charles river is lovely from the right angles. Rather than do the bike tour which is sub-par, do the boat tour from Galleria and enjoy the views from the river.

We were in Cambridge when the Regatta was on and it had a great atmosphere along the river with lots of stalls and freebies.

In town for the biggest crew event in the country. What a great place to see a race - because of all the bridges! The crowds and the tents were fantastic. And the outdoor, temporary oyster place was unbelievable - the best fried-oyster sliders ever, and just about the best oysters on the shell ever, too. Hope we come back next year.
