I am currently enjoying a two week sit in Cambridge, MA with Cosmo. It has been a bit like vacation. Cosmo and I go to the dog park every morning.
Then, when she is napping, I sneak out for a few hours. The evenings are spent writing, reading, and walking some more.
Because I am (mostly) sans Paul, who walks a lot faster than me, I have taken many a picture. Here are a few of my favorite moments so far…
MayFair 2010 just happened to fall on my first day out on my own in Cambridge. I called for a taxi. This alone would make for an interesting blog post, I thought to myself. Yes, I was generalizing, or stereotyping or whatever you want to call it. In my defense, I have taken cabs in Boston before and will leave it at that. Anyway, the cab showed up minutes later and I was greeted by a pleasant, helpful, and soft spoken man named Doyle. Doyle dropped me off at Harvard Square and what a great day I had. Plus, I realized that I could easily walk or take the T home. Thank you for all of your suggestions, Doyle! You made my day(s) in Cambridge that much better.
The pics below were taken at the dog park at Fresh Pond, where Cosmo and I spend most of our mornings. These ducklings were only 3 to 4 days old when we happened upon them. Sweet.
I liked Harvard Square so much that I decided to go back and experience it without the MayFair crowds…Paul came to visit over the weekend and we enjoyed the Square together.
On several occasions, I chose to take the long way home; this day via the Charles River. Just missed the storm you see brewing below.
When I turn right out of the neighborhood instead of left, I run into these gems…
Ok, that’s just a peek at what I have been up to. Stay tuned for Week Two and if there is anything you feel I absolutely must see while I am here, do tell, won’t you?
