Me and dad in the city

Down by the Boston Waterfront District, the newest city park is the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Several lanes of automobile traffic were submerged into a tunnel and this lovely walkable open space in the middle of the city was created. Here my dad is looking at an organic garden beside the wall of skyscrapers.

A temporary art installation, made of a half acre of colorful mesh, is suspended 60 feet above the greenway.

Walking around the waterfront district, we found this other colorful art installation.

Eventually we went to the Boston Tea Party museum, wherein we found "Abigail's Tea House." We're more into beer than tea, but we very much enjoyed the Thanksgiving sandwiches.

You have to go down a long gangway to get from the street to the tea house.

If you taught US history for over 50 years, you gotta pose with Sam Adams.
