In the craziness of my trip, I completely forgot to mention one of my most favorite events of the year: Head of the Charles. It’s a rowers paradise in downtown Boston, with over a million spectators lined up along riverbanks of the 3 mile course, seven bridges, tight turns and a good chance of collisions to add to the excitement in this chase of a race. (Lots of pictures here). Special congratulations to the ‘Hoo Crew for a *spectacular* finish this year (perhaps the best ever). . .And as always, love the graphics.
