Busy Boston Harbor

We watched this crazy "cliff diving" which was a diving event off the top of the museum of contemporary art. It was nuts. There was so much time on the way down to the water that the divers could do 4 or 5 tricks. 

building from where they dove. There were 6 scuba divers in the water awaiting the diver. scary.

The famous swan boats put to bed for the evening.
Spent 10 days in U.S. Was fun to fly to Boston this time as the flight is at least an hour-hour and a half shorter. hooray! Christopher and I helped Matthew furnish his apartment and get him settled for a tough first year in his doctoral program at Boston University. We had some fun along the way, lobster roll lunch, few dinners out, visited friends and relatives.  Lots of great walks in Boston, including going down to the harbor to see the "cliff diving" and I had beautiful weather all along the way.  If you want to know more:
