Happy weekend.  Woot.  Time to link up with my friend James for this week's Weekend Reflections.

Went to Boston last weekend....saw "Les Mis", my most fave musical of ALL time.  The opera house has headsets for the hard of hearing-if the non hard of hearing tried these, I think they'd be jealous.  Sound mixed straight off the board so instrumentation and vocal in nice balance.  It was also a show that was captioned, so I could fill in the blanks by reading subtitles.  Very cool.

What girl goes to Boston and doesn't take along the camera?  Not me...hell no. While I was there I took some time to snag some pics too.  Weather was not super co-operative, but let's just say I managed, like the shot above from South Station.  Love playing around trains and busy transportation hubs.

Also took a wonderful lunch...yum, with a (reflected here) view of Boston Common.  Cost as much as a weeks worth of groceries, but it was a fun treat for M-E!  This cappuccino was dessert, but fessin' up that the glass of wine I started with was the best part.  Like having before and after treats.

I visited the Boston Public Library, BPL if you're in the know....gorgeous architecture....and a beautiful study room with rows and rows of tables, lamps with green shades, and very quiet students.  Had to shut of the "beep" feature on the camera.  Then I snuck a few shots from the hallway and found a little reflection at the entryway.

All in all, a great day in the city.

And back home......

Have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

Glad you had a fun day and treated yourself! Looks like a good time...and the sky put on quite a show for your homecoming, didn't it?


That cappuccino looked pretty good to me - a very
mouth watering shot! Thanks for visiting!

Nice! So glad you "treated" yourself so well. I love the light in that library. I could spend a lot of time blissfully hanging out in a place like that.

SOunds like a wonderful weekend.. I love Les mis too, although it's been a long time since I've seen it. A nice set of reflections here, cappuccino looks good!

How cosmopolitan of you Susan! I'm actually quite jealous -- I do love stage plays and musicals. Sounds like a lot of fun.

My ideal meal is appetizers and desert, just skip the main course.

From working in the cable tv industry, I know WGBH is the pioneer in captioning, so it's no surprise that the technology has spread throughout the Boston area; the headsets sounds like an excellent idea!

A wonderful collection of reflections.

Susan said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip! Lunch at the Four Seasons is a treat indeed! Yum!

Jamie said...

Oh, Les Miz - my favorite. I need to see it again soon.

Brenda said...

Ah, fun and reflections in the city! How wonderful that you were able to enjoy Les Miz again - one I haven't seen. Lovely reflections, documenting your Boston weekend. Good for you for giving yourself this gift.
