Boston: G is for Greater Boston

Welcome to my third year participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. This year's theme is BOSTON.

Today's letter is G which will showcase Greater Boston.

Occasionally this blogging challenge requires the author to fudge a bit. Today is one of those days for me.

When I say "greater Boston" I really mean Cambridge. But since I already had a letter C option ... I had to improvise. I hope you excuse the creative license. It certainly won't be my last...

I was blessed to go on this trip to Boston because my son and
daughter-in-law needed a dog nanny - and "MiMi" was more than
happy to oblige. Our apartment was just over the Longfellow
Bridge in Cambridge. We were on the top floor and enjoyed a
spectacular view!

Our daily routine included three walks around the Cambridge
neighborhood. Maple and I fit right into the urban scene.

I also included a daily walk to the Longfellow Bridge, which
was about five minutes away. I never tired of viewing the
Boston Skyline from the Charles River.

Nor did I tire of this beautiful scene each night
 outside my bedroom window.  
I'm not much for selfies ... but I had to document my last day.
This was truly a trip of a lifetime.
Thank you, Brian and Amanda!


  1. That is a spectacular view, indeed!
    Happy weekend!

    1. We were SO fortunate to have this exquisite apartment for the month!

  2. I'm sure that Cantibridgians will love being called Greater Boston. I'm very fond of Cambridge, a great city in its own right. I'm glad you got to spend some time there.

    1. Cantibridgians ... I've never heard that term but I LOVE it!! I hope I didn't disrespect the area... I wanted to showcase the area, but I couldn't find another letter to fit :)

  3. What a fun way to see Boston and Cambridge! You're entitled to your "fudge." I've stretched things quite a bit this go 'round as well!

    1. Fudging is part of the fun of this blogging challenge, I think :)

  4. You got some beautiful pictures of the city. Boston is a great place to visit. I'm glad you had fun. Weekends In Maine

    1. Thank you! I love to photograph my travels and then recall the adventures year after year. I'd love to learn to capture the emotion of the place as well as the sights. I guess that takes practice... so I see many more trips in my future :)
