This week for Vintage Thingies Thursday -hosted by Suzanne over at Coloradolady's- I thought I would give you a little photo tour of the Back Bay area in Boston. Ed and I spent a wonderful 4 day weekend with none of the kids (thanks Big Ed and Grandma Rose!) in Boston Massachusetts, taking much time to walk around the town and admire the beautiful sites (including some amazing architecture!)
An MIT sailboat out on the Charles
Longfellow Bridge, spanning between Cambridge and Boston
Views from a footbridge on the banks of the Charles River
We didn't do the more traditional stuff like the Duck Boat Tours or Visiting the USS Constitution, we were vacationing on the cheap- our splurge was allowing one decadent breakfast from room service and an hour long in-room massage!
That being said, we took to the streets and wandered whichever direction we felt like heading, stopping to read menus of restaurants along the way so we could plan ahead for future meals.
Please enjoy the photos!
The Infamous Citgo Sign from our hotel window
Boston Public Library
Church of the Covenant on Newbury Street
Engine Company 33/Ladder Company 15 Boston FD
Old South Church
A private residence
Outside Sugar Heaven on Boylston Street- wrought iron chairs and tables built like butterflies, caterpillars and flowers!
The gardens these homes had were nothing less than stunning!
Entrance to The Barclay (private residences)
An entire window display of vintage Singer Sewing Machines at All Saints Spitalfields on Newbury Street
And finally, a few more photos from our 34th floor view at the Westin, Copley Place
Check back tomorrow- I have a few photos of a crazy storm that blew through Boston on Sunday evening!
