Last Saturday, I went on a 1 hour narrated cruise of the Charles River. The Charles is the river that forms the boundary between Boston and Cambridge. I cross the Charles every day on my way to and from work on the train. The train is normally too crowded in the morning to look outside while crossing it, but I am familiar with the skyline and buildings that create it.
I had a Groupon for the Charles River Boat Company that I purchased earlier in the year that expired last Sunday. There’s nothing like waiting till the last minute, but the sun was shining and it was a beautiful day.
The tour normally goes to Harvard and turns around, but there were so many crew (rowing) boats out practicing for the famous Head of the Charles boat race that is taking place this weekend, that we had to turn around early without seeing that end of the Charles River, but I’ve been there lots of times (including again yesterday), so I have some pictures that I’ll post later about the boat race.
