Boston Pops fireworks spectacular

Fourth of July in BostonBoston is a ghost town – that is unless you are in the Back Bay and Beacon Hill in which case it seems like the city is bursting at the seams as final preparations are made for the annual Boston Pops fireworks spectacular.  Earlier today Sergio and I visited the Hatch Shell and walked the Esplanade, and I was impressed by the incredible security and how efficient everything was operating.

If you want to see the fireworks but not go to the Esplanade, take the Red Line to Kendall Square and walk back to the Charles River.  You will be able to listen to the music, while watching the fireworks explode over Back Bay’s skyline.

Whitney Houston: Star Spangled Banner

Since it is July 4th I thought I’d share the 1991 version of our national anthem from Whitney Houston.  I hope you are having a great 4th of July if you celebrate the holiday.

Have a great 4th of July

4th of july muscleMany companies in the US are closing early for our Independence holiday that is officially on July 4th.  For a second year in a row we are staying in Boston (no Ptown).

Sergio’s nephew will arrive later this evening to visit us before he flies back to Brazil. His visit may mean that we need to head toward all that craziness over by the Hatch Shell but I’m hoping we can camp out at a BBQ.

If you celebrate the holiday – enjoy the time away from work and weekend.
