(Pretend it’s January 28th)
What a jam-packed day!! After a full night’s sleep in a very comfortable bed, we went to visit Harvard and walk around Harvard Square. It is beauuutiful (is it sad the only reason I recognized some of the landmarks was because of the Facebook movie??)!!
Once I longed for the clothes in the Anthropolgie window-didn’t even go in, it’s just not worth the heart ache-we ate lunch at a resaturant on the Bay called No Name. The seafood chowder there was out of control. Also, a man (that Charlie and I nicknamed Silverfox because of his gelled back, curly, silver mane) who was on our flight walked into eat at the SAME restaurant at the SAME time on the SAME day. I love moments like that. Charlie just starts saying “No wayyyy. Nooooo wayyyy Ditttt!” and lo and behold, it was Silverfox. What a man. What a head of hair. I salute him, wherever he is.
After lunch, we parted ways and just our fam went to the U.S.S. Constitution. If you don’t know what that is, it’s the oldest commissioned ship afloat. It was launched in 1797. 1797 people!!! And they still sail it every once in awhile. They have obviously refurbished it, but one of the coolest things about it is that it’s free to tour. Both the Constitution and the other ship, a destroyer built in the 1940’s, are part of a U.S. National Park that’s left over from the Charlestown Navy Yard that used to be there. Anyways, we stayed there until sunset. it was awesome to tour something that old. Things like that definitely make you feel small and insignificant in the scheme of things.
When we finished at the Navy Yard, we went back to Boston College to see Karen’s final dance performance at Boston College (and maybe ever!). Her dance group, the Dance Organization of Boston College, is made up of about 40 girls and is completely student run. It was a greattttt performance. I know that’s typical, but the costumes, lighting, coreography, everything was just on point and very professionally done.We were all very proud of her! It made me miss performing, even though that was a looong time ago.
