In case you were wondering, my life is still happening at an alarming rate. I had a fabulous 4th of July in Boston with Linda (pictured below) and Katie (need to get pictures from her since she wasn’t sailing with us). My first time seeing Neil–my mom’s favorite singer/songwriter of all time who deserves his own post–Diamond, sailing, and seeing the most amazing fireworks display of my life. I wish I’d had a tripod with me because my pictures don’t even come close to doing them justice.
On the Charles River…we had front row seats!
The farthest point of land in Massachusetts…from here, nothing but ocean until you hit the UK.
Linda, and our skipper (her friend) Matt.
Random MIT students who signed up for this trip…Matt volunteers to take people out as an alum and certified (is that the right word) skipper, and in return he gets to use the boats for free.
The toe rail…an appropriate name really. And you can see that Linda and I both felt white pants were the proper attire for sailing in Boston Harbor on the 4th of July.
We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather…except that its perfection lulled me into a sense of security that kept me from applying sunblock until it was way past too late.
Craig Ferguson…my oldest sister’s personal hero.
And finally, Neil. I can still hear all of the songs he played in my head, along with several more. America, Sweet Caroline, Forever in Blue Jeans, Shiloh, You Don’t Bring Me Flowers, etc, etc. So many fabulous childhood memories tied up into one performer! It was…BRILLIANT!
good times. that was fun.
Oh Neil. I love him. And his songs (memories & music). I bet the show was FAB!Boston on the 4th–AWESOME!
Craig Ferguson is AWESOME!!! I love that guy with his singing puppets. Thank you for the picture.
