Loving Every Minute of Summer--SFNE

Although I just had a most delightful weekend with my husband, it sounds like David had an equally wonderful time. Among other things:
After dinner, we took the water taxi to The Pavilion. The water taxi only costs $5 pp and is another under-utilized treasure hiding in plain sight. We enjoyed the cool breeze off the harbor while watching Elvis Costello perform with Emmylou Harris. After the show, we took the water taxi back to the Court House, got in our car and drove, with the windows down and sunroof open, along Storrow Drive, enjoying the Charles River with the huge, low, orange moon in tow.
My faithful readers (all 11 of you) know that I love the drive along Storrow, and imagining it as David saw it certainly sounds dreamy, doesn't it?

One of the things I've learned--and love--about New England in my four years here is that most people embrace the seasons, whatever the weather. Cold, colder, coldest? Time to ski! Brisk fall breezes? Enjoy the changing colors! Hot and humid? Hit the beach!

There's a certain zest for everything that comes down the pike. You can't change the weather, but you can use it for all it's worth.

Alison, you can't change the weather, but we can shut ourselves up in our air conditioned apartments and complain about it!

I love to complain. Once in a restaurant, the turkey had no gravy. So I asked the waiter, what gives? Not only did I get a whole gravy boat full of fresh gravy straight from the turkey, but they slaughtered the next turkey right in front of me!

Talk about service!

That is service!

But, Joe, you live in the south, where having a/c indoors is standard. My house's "a/c" is three window units and a bunch of fans. And my friends think that makes me Bill Gates compared to them!
