Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Boston adventures...Charles River

Last Saturday we went on an adventure to the Charles River.  It is a beautiful river with tons of green space around it.  I copied this from the web...Brandeis UniversityHarvard UniversityBoston University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are all located along the Charles River. Near its mouth, it forms the border between downtown Boston and Cambridge and Charlestown (a neighborhood of Boston). Here, the river opens out into a broad basin and is lined by the parks of the Charles River Reservation. On the Charles River Esplanade stands the Hatch Shell, where concerts are given in summer evenings. The basin is especially known for its Independence Day celebration. 


Ok, now the non technical part.  It is beautiful and a great place to run, bike, stroll, and take picnics.  We packed a picnic and strolled along the river until we found a great place to sit.  The boys loved watching all the people running, the boats passing by, and the ducks and geese swiming.  David and I loved being together as a family enjoying our new city.
