It’s Summer in Boston

I know, it is the obligatory car dashboard reading.

Poor Boots has been laying around like this all day. It is tough being furry when there isn’t air conditioning

I am handling it well. Preparing for camping tomorrow. I am hoping it will be cooler out in the harbor. It generally is. If it is hot, I probably won’t need a sleeping bag. I bought food and drink to bring and I am excited. Of all the harbor islands, I have never been to Bumpkin, I think. I have been to a few but might not have gotten the names right.

Someday, I would love to visit the Boston Light. I have lived in the Boston area for 95% of my life and have never been. There is lots I haven’t done. I don’t think I have walked the entire Freedom Trail at once, ever. Maybe I should pretend to be a tourist. Though tourists tell me I look like I am from Boston, whatever that means.

Do you do touristy things in your hometown?

  1. Poor Boots! We only have a window AC unit in the bedroom, which usually gets shut off during the day while we're at work. This morning I felt so bad for the cats that I left it on and cracked the bedroom door open so they could hang out in there and keep cool. Only one more day and then it should be cooler!

    Funny you mention the Freedom Trail - I had never walked it in it's entirety before this year, and I walked it back in March (I think). My tip: go backwards - start at the Bunker Hill Monument. I can't wait to hear about camping on Bumpkin Island! We're planning a trip to camp on Grape Island for Labor Day weekend.

  2. Once a year, in October, there is mayors night out in Salem where residents can go to the attractions for free. I try to do that because I hate looking like a tourist. It's some kind of complex I have
