Boston Fall 2013: Museum of Fine Arts and Catching Up

| 1 Comment

On our final day in Boston, we spent the morning at the Museum of Fine Arts.

(Seriously, I am the queen of crooked pictures. Time for a photography class?)

We had limited time due to afternoon plans, but I can see myself spending 12 hours in this museum EASILY. It was absolutely huge and gorgeous.

We enjoyed the Asian, ancient, contemporary, and American galleries, and a few of the European rooms (gotta see those Monet paintings).

After a few hours, we went to meet our dear friend Albert for lunch. Albert and I were in the same homeschooling group growing up, and he’s now a law student at Harvard. Greg had to leave for his conference stuff, so Albert and I took a lovely walk around the area.

I cracked up at this ridiculously long line of geese.

We happened to be near Fenway Park, and I felt inclined to take pictures due to all the Red Sox hype while we were in town.

After a wonderful time catching up with Albert, I headed back to the Museum of Fine Arts to have a look at the Sargent watercolors. I also looked at a room full of jewel displays. The museum closed, Greg’s conference ended, and we went to Quincy Market for our final Boston dinner. We called it a night early since we had a 5am shuttle to the airport. Fun fact: It takes less time to fly to Iceland from Boston than it does to fly from Boston to San Diego.

All around, another lovely trip.
