Easter Sunday, April 20, Boston
Final full day in Boston. We return home tomorrow and will be home until departing for Trip Four on Tuesday April 29 for 7 weeks in the Southwest.
Easter has been a great day. We drove downtown to the Paulist Center in Boston again, for 10 AM Mass. It was projected to be crowded, aren’t most Easter services crowded? We arrived early so I went for a walk around Boston Commons. Tomorrow is the big day for the race and while the finish line is well before this area, the Commons area is one of many post-race gathering areas and the staging area for satellite TV trucks. People in spandex were everywhere, getting in a run or just being a tourist.
After Mass we went to Scollay Square for brunch and then back home for a restful afternoon. We exchanged Easter baskets, your kids never really grow up, you know. One item we brought was a puzzle of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore (2013 Trip 7, UP of Michigan). Upon completion, it was obvious quality control was faulty since about six border pieces were missing. I managed to finish the second of the two paperback novels I had received upon arrival.
I was put to work however. Apple crisp is one of my few cooking specialties so a large pan was prepared, and as of now, has not yet been completely devoured.
