Matthew snapped a few pictures of the pine tree when he and Jeff arrived home this evening. The progress is dramatic...albeit not complete. I guess this is a 2-3 day process. [Thanks for the photos, Matt.]
Also, a hearty THANK YOU to my buddy (and avid blog reader) Sean for his Boston food tips. At Sean's recommendation, we tried Durgin-Park in the Faneuil Hall Market. These folks love to draw attention to their 100+ years of existence..."YOUR GRANDFATHER & PERHAPS YOUR GREAT GRANDFATHER DINED WITH US TOO" and "ESTABLISHED BEFORE YOU WERE BORN". Its unabashedly kitschy, but their simple but hearty seafood dishes held up nicely to the hype. We were offered a spot on the outside terrace, but the hot and sticky air drove us downstairs to the cool (and lively) bar area. We topped off dinner with a house specialty, the strawberry shortcake. Yum.
