Staycation versus Vacation
Everyday there was a chance of a thunder storm and we even had a tornado 10 miles away. This meant only one morning of golf, no beach and lots of books to read. ( I think I read about 7 books last week....) We did head into Boston on Friday but the Duck tours were all booked by noon. So we headed up to the top of the Prudential ( for a mere $11 each) to gaze upon the city. We then walked from the Prudential down Copley, Newbury St., through the Boston Commons where the 2 15year olds would not ride the Swan Boats, to Fanuel Hall and then down to the docks. We then headed back to the North End where we ate in a really neat hole in the wall sandwich shop next to the restaurant where I had wanted to eat at, but we were a little too early. Afterwards we treated ourselves to some delicious Cannoli while we headed over to Haymarket for some cheap fruit. I wish I had taken out my camera to catch all the vendors and people. It was a very relaxing day.
Did we go to Fenway that night? Heck no, the Yankees were in town and our chances of scoring some tickets were nil to none. Will blog later about some of the books that I read, but you will see some additions to my library in the side bar.
What do you think? More people having vacations like us? How do you feel about the price of oil for the fall?
