Christmas in New England

White Beach

Given how bad the weather was in Boston today, I'm really surprised that we made it into town with so little difficulty. We took off on time and got to Boston a bit early. We had to circle a while witing for the runway to be plowed and the airport reopened, then had to wait on the ground a bit for a gate to become available. Total delay time: abot an hour.

Things were so pretty when we got out of the city. It's like Christmas from my childhood.

Glad you guys arrived safely (I'm assuming Leon is with). That looks beautiful. I wish we would get some snow here, but that is probably not going to happen considering it was in the low 70's yesterday.

I am also happy to read that you arrived safely. Enjoy NE and your visit home.

We are getting round 2 even as I type and I suspect it is also on its way toward where you are.

Doug, I just finished my Butterfly posting which will post for MY World tomorrow. I'm counting on you to help me out! Meanwhile, you stopped by while I was writing! Nice to see you! My son and his wife will be flying into Boston on the 24th! I hope they make it! My sister has been texting me photos of the snow all morning! I hope you and Leon have a really good time on your visit. Lately its been rare to have a white Christmas there, so I hope it is magical for you!

Glad to read that your travels were safe and that you are home for Christmas. Hope it is a really fine journey.

Doug- just one comment for your readers- the first picture says White Beach- and I think most readers may assume that you are referring to the snow- not knowing that the actual name of the beach is White Beach! Happy Holidays to all- and Doug and Leon- we have our annual scallop dinner tomorrow night-YAY

cedrorum- Yep, Leon is here, too. It's been a really beautiful, snowy day here. We'll probably have a white Christmas, though the now probably won't be at all pristine by then.

Lem- Round 2 is here as I type.

Kathie- Thanks. and Merry Christmas. I'm looking forward to your butterfly post. You mentioned something about Australian butterflies, so I already have my suspicions about the species involved.

Robin- Thanks. I hope that you have a good Christmas, too. Oh, and happy solstice.

CG- It never occurred to be that the photo was both White Beach and a white beach. Thanks, and can't wait until tomorrow night.
