I have always loved this city the few times I've been here, and this is no exception. It is simply a beautiful city. I took some photos from my hotel room this morning, but didn't snap any while we were out. Hopefully I'll remember to take some tomorrow. It's very crowded, no doubt because the tourists are here during the summer months and no doubt many of them are here for the fourth of July.
I have loved being here with family, but I have to give special praise to my daughter-in-law Sandy. She is so aware of my failing eyesight plus the trouble with my ankle, and she is always helping me in so many ways - especially to caution me when there is a curb or a step I need to watch out for, and other situations where I need help. She gives me a hand in a way that it's perfectly natural and I don't feel like the dumbest or most helpless person in the world, which I probably am.

This is Boston on a slant!
While I'm at it I want to post a photo I took about a week ago in New York. These are the strangest skies I've ever seen, and they certainly aren't natural. It looks like the pilot of the plane making them was having fun blowing smoke rings! It was taken at the Clearwater's Music and Environmental Festival that Ara and I went to about 2 weeks ago.
I'm going to stop now but will try to post more tomorrow.
