Beautiful!

One of my co-workers is up there going to Trust School this week, living with some friends in the city. I would imagine it's a nice, cool change for her.

Hi Greg,
Cool is the operative word as the temperature didn't get over 70 yesterday. Although, if she's here over the weekend, it is supposed to be beautiful.

Nice shots Zig. I lived in south Boston in the very early 70s when I was in the service. I remember standing on the observation deck of the Prudential building I believe 52nd floor and watching the windows pop out of the John Hancock across the street : ) What golf course was that?

Hi Eric,
Miraculously, no one was injured from all the falling glass!!

As for the glof course, it's called Granite Links which opened up a couple of years ago in the Quincy location known as the Quincy Quarries. The Quarries were filled in with the spoils taken from the Big Dig in Boston. The result is a spectacular golf course with an incredible view 360 degree view.

My wife and I dined at the clubhouse there last evening with a couple of friends. The evening skies cleared and the resulting sunset was as pretty as any I've ever seen.
