Happy Easter and Photo Tour of Boston, Part II

Gravesite of Elizabeth Pain
(inspiration behind Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter)

Saturday's game against the Yankees
The man and my favorite player - Dustin Pedroia 
(we had AWESOME last minute seats--actually walked up to the gate during the 2nd inning and
bought them--it was INSANE)

A-rod batting (I'm not a fan, so the highlight for me was booing him, but you
also have to admit that he's a legend and it was cool to see him. I REALLY enjoyed
seeing Jeter, but didn't get a good shot of him before my camera died. Doesn't matter WHO
he plays for, Jeter is amazing!)

Jacoby Ellsbury - this one's for you, Jennifer! Thought
about you while we were there!

Outside Fenway Park

Back Bay Area

Granary Burial Ground
(Resting Place of John Hancock, Paul Revere, and Ben Franklin's parents)

I have a thing for trees in the middle of the cemetery!

Boston Commons

Where everybody knows your name

Self-explanatory, don't you think?

Pre-beer (note to me: I DO NOT like Indian Pale Ale, even when it's named the Green Monstah, which
at the time, seemed appropriate. Found out later, Indian Pale Ale = Bitter. Will not forget again.
And, yes, I drank it ANYWAY. LOL.)

Me and Norm

Boston Public Library

Entrance to library

I don't know about you, but my library doesn't look like THIS!

Courtyard at the Boston Public Library (the fountain was drained for the winter)

HAD to check this out!

Reflection Pool (also drained for Winter)

Christian Library (loved the quote!)

Fenway Park Tour pre-Sunday game

No idea why I took this one

Batting practice

View from the Monster Seats!

This bar has a cutout against the out field wall and
you can enter (without cover) to watch the game, anytime!

Me, hubs, Jay, Shelly
(I went to college with Shelly, but her husband, Jay, and I
are the hard core Sox fans!)

V-tek warming up (he's one of my FAVES!)

Pitchers walking to the bullpen

Celebratory beer post-game after our big win Sunday
against the Yankees!

Okay, so this was quite a few pictures, right? Especially for Part II, but considering the fact that I took over 400 during our trip, I think we can all agree that I did a good job consolidating. Right? Right?

Okay, I admit it, I have a photo taking problem. I'm a total "documenter" and "scrapbooker".

What about you? Any trips you've taken lately? Any photo tours on your blog?
(They're my favorite, so feel free to drop me a link.)

Happy Easter to you all!
Hope you spent it with friends and family, feeling loved.

    Thank you for your comment on My Blog and yes, I know the very moment. ;)

  3. Looks like you had a blast!! Those cemetery photos are awesome! And I'd love to take a peek inside that library. I can't imagine one so large.

    And Cheers is a real bar???? Is it where they filmed the show??

  4. Oh, thank you! *wink*
    Loved the pics!!

  5. What a pretty library! It's just so big. I bet they have lots of good stuff in there! Looks like you had a blast, and Boston looks so pretty. :)

  6. I've never been to Boston... looks like a great time.

    Nope I'm not much of a picture taker. Yours are awesome, BTW.

    Thx for sharing.

  7. Ooohhh! Jealous. I've never been to Boston. The architecture alone is worth the trip!
