Day 6: Arthur changed our plans.

Yesterday, if you'll remember I was at a downtown Starbucks and from there I was headed to Walgreens. On the way, I found a really cool bookstore at the end of an alley.

I bought one book, James Thurber's My Life and Hard Times. I haven't started it yet, but I'm super excited.

When I got back to the boat, Barry informed me that I had missed out on the USS Constuitution leaving. It was the fourth, so it was some ceremonial something or other. Hence, the fire boats' ceremonial spray.

It's a good thing Boston rescheduled 4th activities, because yesterday's weather would have really ruined things. It was spitting rain on me, on and off, all morning. When I got back to boat, Barry and I had lunch on the stern and watched it really start raining. And it didn't stop. All day long. I took this pic after supper. Remember, the black boat-shaped icon is the boat...

Luckily, today is a BEAUTIFUL day. It's about 65 degrees outside, windy, and sunny! I tried going to Zume's, the coffee shop I went to the other day, but as I walked up a guy told me, "Sorry, we're closed. Theres a flood in the basement." At the time, I didn't understand how that affected my cup of coffee, but I think that might have been a bad attitude. So now I'm at Dunkin. Harrumph. (My coffee was good, my muffin was fine. I'm just complaining.) 

I have some chores to do today, then I may walk over the bridge again if the weather is still this nice. 

That's all for today. Happy 5th of July!
