Head of the Charles

Row-in boats a-cross the water
Bring 'em on in, bring 'em on home...

{Bring 'Em On In -- Van Morrison}

Another spectacular late October weekend for the annual Head of the Charles Regatta. This was the 55th rowing of the prestigious regatta.

Over 11,000 athletes come from all over the country and world to take on the famed Charles River and use locals love finding spots along the winding route to catch the action.

I always head over to the BU Bridge. Super views on the city and boats. Then a stroll along the river on the esplanade to take in more of the action as boat after boat is called to the start.

A fall tradition for us Bostonians!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 42

The Good:
My neighborhood wears fall well.

The Random:
I was cleaning a drawer over the weekend and found 5 pairs of old glasses and my pointer for reading Torah...which I thought was at my mom's in NY...!

The Fun:
We had a super fun activity in 2nd grade this week. We turned pumpkins into globes to wrap up our first social studies unit!

BAA Half 2019

Sunday was the BAA Half marathon. I was meant to be running it, but alas still riding the injury recovery bus. I got some slow miles in before heading over to cheer with Heartbreak friends. 
 The elites came in strong (they hit mile 5 at 24ish minutes) and then soon the rest of the runners came in strong! It is always great to cheer loudly for Heartbreak teammates and we were giving tons of pep to all the runners who looked strong at the 1/3ish mark.
It was a little hard to be cheering, again, instead of running...but I am trying to be positive that I will be back out there better than ever when the time is right!
 A super great day to cheer. The weather was perfect for the runners (let's face it, it's because I wasn't running it...) and I had a blast being involved in the race as best I can at the moment!

Wind, Waves, and Light

And the sky is clear and bright
Lead me out into the light...

Chase the wind and touch the sky I will fly
Chase the wind and touch the sky


{Touch the Sky -- Julie Fowlis}

One of my favorite local botanical areas, Tower Hill Botanical Garden has had amazing sculptures on display all summer and I finally got out to see them as the weather turned from summer to fall.

The pieces are all by artist George Sherwood and are meant to move with the wind and catch the light. They were perfectly placed around the stunning grounds. The wind slowly moving the pieces and the October sun catching them here and there.

It was a perfect day to wander around and see the fall blossoms and amazing art!
