Bump, Bump, Bump

Bump, Bump, Bump

First there was Curio, with lattés and Belgium waffles again. we had no trouble finding a table this time. Then the T, the ancient Green line. Years ago when I was last in Boston, I remember riding the T and having to get off so that the car could be turned around on a giant subterranean turntable, made of oil soaked wood and steel. I was worried about my dress shoes. This turn-around could be done, because the cars were all individual trollies back then. Passengers just stood around at the edge of the turntable and at the edge of the darkness that enveloped it. Anyway, we lucked out and boarded the right Green train. Downtown, the Green splits and goes a bunch of different ways. Later Dave popped by bubble by telling me that all of the trains from the station that we had boarded on, always goes the way that we had hoped that it would.

Our destination was the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. It looked like a rainy day, a good day to spend in a museum. The featured exhibit was “Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic.” Based upon the books written by A.A. Milne and illustrated by E.H. Shepard. The primary emphasis of this show was Shepard’s drawings. It is an art museum after all. Many of Shepard’s preliminary sketches were featured, along with explanations of the collaborative process between these two artists. After the show, we decided it was time for a little snackerel or something and headed off to the café. We ended up whiling away the whole day exploring all the galleries. Well, most of them anyway.

In the evening, we met Dave and his friend for dinner. Dinner was downtown at Atlantic Fish. The best seafood so far this trip. Later, we went to the Prudential Center for drinks and the view (50+ stories), but they were slammed. We ended up downstairs at a place called Eataly. It is kind of a smorgasbord of food stands and markets all combined under one roof. Before we turned into pumpkins for the night, the Uber-mobile swooped in and whisked us away. Back at the B&B we queried the bouncer about the night’s band. It looks to be a long night…
