Battery Wharf

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

I’m going to be doing a painting of a bride on her wedding day, and her big day finally arrived! I had a wonderful afternoon walking through the North End to Battery Wharf, which happens to be one of my favorite places in Boston (and not just because it has a wonderful view across the harbor to the Hyatt where we were married). The bridal suite at the Fairmont Battery Wharf is literally right at the end of the wharf, and it has some really incredible views. I had the honor of hanging out with the wedding party during some of the formal photos, as well as with my friend, the mother of the bride. We took some really wonderful photos for the painting, and I can’t wait to get started!

After we were done with the photos, I walked back through the North End to head home for a quick change before heading back out again to see Fitz and the Tantrums at the House of Blues! Great show.

Saint Anthony’s Feast

We checked out the Feast of St. Anthony, an annual weekend-long festival in the North End. It was really fun!

North End

Monday, August 4th, 2014

I had the day off, so I ran an errand at city hall (such an ugly building!), then I decided to wander around the North End. It’s such a lovely neighborhood, especially during the day when the sidewalks are not packed with long lines outside of every restaurant. Unfortunately, the sky was gray so the photos aren’t great, but it was a lovely afternoon for wandering. Of course, the North End is right by the harbor so I was able to find a quiet bench and watch the sailboats go by for a while. Great view of the hotel where we were married!

Charlestown sunset

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

The USS Constitution is the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel, and it’s parked right near our friend’s apartment in Charlestown. They set off a cannon every day at 8am and at sunset, so we went up on to the roof to watch the last moments of a bright pink sunset (with the Bunker Hill Monument on the left), then watch as boats of full of tourists arrived for the USS Constitution‘s daily ritual.

I had an errand to run in the North End, then I took a long lovely stroll on the Boston Harborwalk — gorgeous little neighborhoods with incredible views of Boston Harbor! At the end of my walk, I treated myself to an oysters and an ahi tuna app on Joe’s patio at Columbus Park.
