I'm not sure how I stumbled upon this, but it's definitely being added to my list of things to do! Ships competing in the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge will be porting here July 8-12. The types of ships range from the Topsail Schooner to the Tree-masted Schooner to the the Full-rigged Ship. There are public boarding times on each day- 5pm-10pm Thursday and Friday and 5pm-8pm Friday and Saturday. They'll be at the Charlestown Navy Yard, Seaport World Trade Center and Fishpier. There's also a festival on Friday at Downtown Crossing around noon, among other events. It's all free- even better! Below are two of the ships that came last year. Check out Sail Boston '09 for more info!     Sail Boston is happening within 5 minute walking distance of Harborview at the Navy Yard, Charlestown's pre...

I had the past two days off and they were dreary and cold. Well, I say cold. I'm expecting to walk into a heat shield of 85o with 95% humidity down south. Instead the day I go into the city it's in the 60's and looks like it's going to pour any second. At least the rain is warm back home, unlike here! Now that I'm back in the office it's nice and mid-70's. Of course :) But I'm not complaining- I've got the windows wide open and a great breeze coming in that oddly enough doesn't smell at all like the ocean. Boy I'm gonna miss this when it gets cold....

I first visited Modern Pastry last summer after a company dinner in the North End (Boston). Let me just take this moment to say, you don't find stuff like this back in Virginia! It was just like stepping back into Europe. Between the gelati, fruity concoctions, cheesecake (my weakness), cannolis, cookies... yeah I think the first time there I bought half the shop. At least it seemed like it. Now that I live a 10-15 minute walk from it, I go there pretty frequently. Their creme brule is to die for. :) If you're in the area, definitely stop over and check them out. They're tasty and reasonably priced!           Modern Pasty is 1.7mi away from Harborview at the Navy Yard, Charlestown's premier waterfront living!

Our leasing office opens at 12 and the parade started at 12:30. I told our other leasing agent that I would probably step out to take a few pictures. They closed Charlestown at 11am and blocked the road that leads to our office. Needless to say, we closed until 2 and we were able to see the entire parade. I'm pretty sure we saw about 18 different candidates running for either Council or Mayer, 8 bag pipe companies, 4 drum and bulge corps.... it was a long parade, but fun! The gathering point for everyone in the parade was down at the Navy Yard, on 1st street, so as I was walking to the parade I got a sneak peak of everyone that was coming up. All this week on talk radio, they've been saying Bunker Hill day is just a holiday for the union workers. I don't really care- I liked the parade ...

The historic Navy Yard is literally a five minute walk from me. I explored the area a few nights ago on my Charlestown prowl.   Aside from housing the dry docks, the Navy Yard is home to the Constitution Museum, USS Cassin Young and the USS Constitution. The museum's summer hours are 9-6 and winter hours are 10-5 (Novemember-March). If you want to tour Ole Ironsides, you can take a guided tour every half hour between 10:30-4:30 (closed on Mondays in the summer. Winter hours: closed Monday-Wednesday, tours every half hour 10:30-3:30), or you can tour the ship on your own. You cannot go below deck if you tour the boat without a group. I believe the Cassin Young follows the same hours.       The history here is amazing. Granted, it's not like the castles we saw in England, but for America,...

I had every intention of going to the gym right after work. And I did... after I made dinner and cleaned my closet and took a walk around Charlestown. I'd seen signs for "Harborwalk" but I never actually walked along it, so I figured last evening was as good a time as any. It's been raining here a lot lately, so I was glad it decided to take a break while I wandered around       If you're following these signs and you can see the water, you're on the right trail. Most of the property right on the water is either condos, apartments or hotels. The walk wraps right around our property and on down toward the Navy Yard. If I hadn't stopped to take so many pictures, I could've been down at the Yard in five minutes from where I live.     As you can see there are still parts of the harbor that ...

Last year while doing my internship in Revere, I stumbled upon this great little seafood place in Charlestown, Tavern on the Water. Mom and Dad were coming to visit so I figured walk around the area, show them Harborview (which at the time I made the comment that if I could work anywhere when I graduated, it would be here. who knew?) and check out this restaraunt. Tavern on the Water. Yum!!! The seafood tastes like it was just swimming around before I ordered it. When you live in Virginia most of your life, you really miss quality seafood. The prices are very reasonable and it is defintely worth a trip to the area to check it out. I highly recommend the Blackened Center Cut Swordfish. Delish!                            This restaraunt is a 5 minute walk down Harborwalk from Harborview a...

That's right, it's time for the annual Bunker Hill parade! With Bunker Hill Day just around the corner, the parade route streets are filled with "Tow Zone, no parking Sunday" signs. I have no clue where people are supposed to park then as there is pretty much no parking here as it is. But I don't have to worry about that. :) The parade starts on Sunday, June 14th at 12:30pm but it's recommended that you get to Charlestown by 11am to find parking and get a good spot along the route. The parade route will start at the corner of Bunker Hill St and Cook St, and turn onto Main St, from there Union St, Washington St, Harvard St, Warren St, Momument Ave, High St, Green St, Bartlett St, Momument Sq, Winthrop St and finish at Common St at the Training Field. As many may remember from high school...
