Boston Month

Welcome to August, which I have designated Boston Month! Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday there will be a post about Boston, what we did, where we ate, what we saw. Some will be short, some will be long, but by the time August is over, you’ll be sick of Boston.

Back in May, we went to Boston for the Little Sister’s graduation. We stayed at the Marriott Copley, which is at the other side of the mall from the Worldcon in Boston several years ago. Luckily, we didn’t eat at California Pizza Kitchen the whole time again.

And speaking of the SFnal world, I saw Susan Groppi sitting in my hotel lobby! I thought what a coincidence that was. She was there for another graduation. But unfortunately, our schedules didn’t mesh up enough to spend any time together. Boo!

I did manage to get in touch with a Clarion Classmate (Carla), who seemed to be doing well.

While in Boston, we ate at Stephanie’s on Newberry, Kashmir, Atlantic Fish, and Sonsie’s. We went to the New England Aquarium, did the duck tour and, of course, went to the Boston College graduation.

So starting Monday, you will get to read about my trip! Enjoy!
