Boston, Day 2

Our hotel was right across the street from the Christian Science campus. This is a picture of the main church.

There's a beautiful little grove of trees on the Huntington Avenue side of the campus. You can see, the trees aren't nearly as far along as ours down South.

Saturday, Jim, Anna, and I went to Priscilla's of Boston so we could see Anna's beautiful wedding dress. Back in 1973, when I was in Laurel Lea Schaefer's wedding we all wore dresses from Priscilla's of Boston. Anna's dress is perfect. After we finished there, we walked down to Copley Square to wait for the number 9 bus to Southie.

We got off the bus one stop early so we could make a little pilgrimage to the Italian bakery. We got some lovely treats to have with our tea and spent a lazy afternoon in South Boston. That night, we had a delicious dinner at the fantastic Venezuelan restaurant called Orinoco on Shawmut. It's a tiny place with just a few tables, but the food is so unique and exciting. These are baskets decorating the wall.

Colorful chairs enliven the small table area.

After dinner, we walked to the Calderwood Pavilion to see a preview performance of the Huntington Theatre Company's Miracle at Naples.
Days three and four will be Friday's post.

Sounds like a wonderful day again. How awesome to see your daughter in her wedding dress. So nice to know the right spots to go for dinner and treats.
