Three girlfriends and I traveled to the east coast, saw a bit of history and city sites, dined in some great places, and shared many fabulous moments of living life together over the past few days.
We shared conversations about our past and thoughts about nearly everything, as we walked the Freedom Trail, sat on the pier in Boston Harbor, wandered through the Back Bay neighborhood, drove along the Cape, and pedaled our bikes to Edgartown.
And the food…we read about it (Elin Hildebrandt books)…we looked at it (Quincy Market, outdoor dining spots, bakery windows, corner stores)…and devoured it (fishcakes and fries at Durgin Park…white chocolate almond nougat and ricotta filled cannolis from Modern Pastry…a lobster roll and fried whole belly clams at Nancy’s on Martha’s Vineyard…seafood pasta in the North End…chicken and cilantro stuffed pastelitos at Border Café in Harvard Square…take-out pizza from Sal’s after drinks and fries at Clarke’s Pub.)
There was Dunkin Donut coffee, as we read our Nantucket novels on a Boston rooftop. We played cards and watched a chick flick in our hotel room, as we enjoyed a mysterious bottle of wine that was delivered to our room. We rolled dice for farkle, with drinks al fresco at Mija near Faneuil Hall. We peeked in on Fenway Park from a spot in centerfield.
We laughed until we cried. We shared some of our crazy irrational fears. We encouraged one another. Life is good. Cheers!
