Just a Little Jaunt Around Town

Today, Brian and I went for a walk. Brian's back has been hurting him lately whenever he sits down, so he has been spending most of his time either lying down or standing up. And standing up gets kinda boring, so mostly, he has been walking.

We left at 2:30 pm (um, not exactly early risers here!) with a list of various places we wanted to hit: Goodwill, Cheapo Records in Central Square, Christina's in Inman Square, and Union Square. At Goodwill, we got rid of two bags of various items. Cheapo Records was not exactly cheap. Christina's, as always, was amazing. And Union Square was unremarkable. However, we did stumble across a few fun things on the way, not the least of which was a Target!

But more interesting to you may be this graveyard of radiators:

Then, I spied this castle tower, and wanted to go exploring.

Lucky for us, it was on the top of a hill in a public park with lovely views of the city:

We stepped onto a subway at 9:00, and when we got home, we measured our path: 5.75 miles! And Brian thinks the walking is helping - his back feels a little better each day.

What is that sea of radiators? It's a really neat picture.

Those are interesting pictures from your walk. What a view from the castle tower. It has been many years since I've used a subway as transportation (brings back memories).

I wish there was a store like Christina's near me. Herbal chai spice, green tea and grand marnier flavors - sounds yummy.
