I Took A Walk

Work has been insanely crazy lately, so I took a three day weekend and had yesterday off. It was gorgeous, so my biff and I decided to go into Boston and have a walk around. She wanted to walk down Boylston because she hadn’t been there since the Marathon, so we made our way. We were greeted with a fence covered in ribbons of fabric, left as tokens of thoughts and prayers from citizens and visitors of Boston. We then stopped in Copley, where the barriers that blocked off Boylston during the invesitgation were arranged in a horseshoe in the square, and a memorial had been created. It was absolutely silent there (well, as silent as the middle of the city can be) despite all the people there. The whole thing was very moving, and reminded me – again – why I love this city.

Here’s a selection of a few photos I took during our walk. I can’t really say much about them except that they’re just a slice of what I experienced. If you’d like, you can view the entire album here. (I know, I know, it’s a Facebook album, but my Photobucket is full. Sorry.)

About MaryMallard

I'm obsessed with social media, good food, and my dog. I just want to leave a footprint in the world, no matter how small. I hope this blog entertains you, makes you think, or inspires you to try new things. If you have anything to say, don't hesitate to say it. And if there are ever truffle fries on a menu, order them.
