Independence


So, due to various issues, the car boat could not be fetched from its resting place in New Hampshire in time for a voyage on the Charles this year to watch the fireworks for the 4th and celebrate Scott’s birthday.

Instead, a bunch of us just hopped into various rafts (which we hastily patched at the last minute and crossed our fingers) and paddled down the river with brute force. Unfortunately, we launched a tad late, so we were still powering down the Charles towards the Mass Ave. bridge for most of the fireworks. Still, in spite of the rain and wetness, it was quite a view — and better than just sitting at home watching out the window.

    Why do I feel like that is a direct call at me?

    ha! no, not a call at you. If anything, a call at myself noting what I would have been doing otherwise.
