Weekend Update: No Driving

(by Pat)

Unlike last weekend, we didn't need to use Zipcar or any other cars this weekend. Instead, we got around by bike, foot, T, and boat. We took bike trips to our garden, to Arnold Arboretum (where we caught tadpoles and frogs and fed kettle corn to catfish), Haymarket, and grocery stores. Tracy took the T to the mall to buy luggage for our upcoming vacation (and had to return it via T for a replacement, when we learned it was broken). Noah and I traveled by T to the Boston Waterfront, where we met up with an old high school friend and his four-year-old daughter, who were here on a long airline layover. We jumped on the ferry out to the Harbor Islands to eat hot dogs and collect beach glass and catch up. Perfect day for it.

It felt good to be all over town, so many different times, and not need (or want) a car.
