Ruby Tuesday

Ralph and I went to Boston this past weekend. Yippee!
It was a treat to see something different for a bit ~ a change of scenery is always good for the soul.
We attended our nephew's wedding and had a great time seeing family and taking in the sights.
I snapped this shot of the '57 Chevy BelAir convertible that cruised around the block several times while we were sitting outside the bar below:

What a perfect Ruby Tuesday sign! Ralph also posted this photo today for RT.
The apartments upstairs must be inhabited by twenty-somethings. Just a guess.
We joined family members outside for drinks. It was a beautiful evening, plus I'm not young enough to go in a place like that!! It was fun to watch the passing parade. A group of sailors in dress whites walked by and we all applauded and said thank you to them.

I took this photo of the entrance to Quincy Market on our way back to the hotel.

Below we find a carousel in Christopher Columbus Park, across from where we had Father's Day brunch. I spied the red and had to shoot a photo for Ruby Tuesday.

We have more photos from our trip north, but I'm saving some for sepia scenes and such. ;-)

See lots more photos featuring red at Mary T's Work of the Poet.

What a nice trip, Patti. I've never been to Boston. It's on our dance card and I sure hope we make it happen someday.

Love the carousel. My favorite ride.

Nice series. I also saw a very long car (yesterday) but it was pink so no photo.

I just left Ralph's and commented on that red sky shot. :)
You've made Boston look like a fun town. I've always wanted to visit but I've never been.
Love the Chevy!

I had a '57 Chevy...black and white was mine. Loved looking back in time with that photo. LOL

My Ruby Tuesday is "Skipping Rocks" - a sculpture. Come by to view if you have time today.

Great pictures, really like the bar shot, looking up! And I wish I could have been there when you all clapped and thanked the soldiers. I get goosebumps just thinking of it. What a great thing to do!!!!

A trip to Boston is definitely in my future. The Sisters will be doing a Boston day and one day in the tiny seaside town of Winthrop just across Boston Harbor where we all spent the early part of our childhood. I'll have to keep my eye out for that bar!

From the sounds of your blog and Ralph's, too, you had a wonderful time in Boston! I'm so glad that you had the chance to go do something fun and get some great pictures at the same time!

I really love Boston though I hate driving in it! I'm going to have to get back up there one of these days when I've got some free time - whenever that may be!

I love Boston. I have a lot of family in the area but the closest I ever seem to get is the airport! Great carousel, so colorful.
