Gun-Hee’s Day in Boston

I didn’t take my camera along, so I have only words with which to illustrate it. But Gun-Hee and I took a long walk through a good part of Boston this afternoon.

We started at the former Broadway (now Jim Kelly) Bridge, and the first thing we saw was a man riding his bike. He was wearing a front carrier like Gun-Hee’s, and riding along with him was a Whippet. I laughed and waved at him, and he grinned and nodded in reponse. After crossing the bridge, we walked to Spoochies, a pet boutique at Tremont and where Arlington turns into Herald. We shopped a bit, then got a drink at the CVS next door, and continued on to Back Bay. We walked along Newbury Street for a bit (I wanted to look into the bead shop, on tax-free day), and then moved over to Comm Ave., where Gun-Hee stalked some sparrows, much to my amusement.

We worked our way up to the Boston Public Garden (where Gun-Hee stalked Canadian Geese) and then Boston Common. We spent a good deal of time here, chasing squirrels and birds. Then we went to Filene’s Basement before walking home on the Fort Point Channel part of the Boston Harborwalk. This is probably Gun-Hee’s favourite part; he’s so familiar with it and at home on it, he walks most of the way on it under his own power.

We left at 3:30, and got back home at 7. It was a great day out, and a part of me wishes I’d had my camera. The other part, though, is somewhat glad I didn’t, because I would have been too occupied with capturing the day I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy it.
But here’s a map showing where we walked…
