Boston

A little walk around Charles River Esplanade

Story by David Blurton December 27th, 2013

Autumn in Boston

We caught a bus from New York, arriving in Boston on a sunny October afternoon. Whilst I was waiting for my room mate to arrive, I took a walk to the river and found this lovely park.

This looks like the perfect place to read a book on a Sunday afternoon.

The memorial contains the names of famous classical composers.

Next to a children's play area is a wall with some cool turtle sculptures.

As the sun set over the river, I got a coffee from the Esplanade cafe and wandered back to the apartment.
