I've always complained that I feel isolated living in Montreal, that all vacation destinations are too far. To overcome this mental block, this year we took a road-trip to Boston.

A six hour car ride may sound like a nightmare when traveling with a three-year old, but a trip to the Dollarstore provided us with enough distractions for the drive. The studio booked, the directions printed, and our stops strategically planned out, we left early on a Saturday morning. I took full advantage of the long drive to work on my KAL cardigan and made great progress.

Now let me tell you about Boston. I loved it, we all did! It did not stop us one bit that we were there during the heat-wave, we were out all day, every day. We stayed in the North End, or Little Italy, within walking distance to a multitude of restaurants, cafes, pastry shops, as well as Quincy Market and the harbor. A great location! We spend a lot of time in the Public Gardens and Boston Common to cool off, but we also visited Beacon Hill and Harvard, the Children's museum and the Museum of Fine Arts. Quite a bit for a five day trip. Our planning was based mostly on information from Frommers, a great source.

I will leave you with a few of my favorite shots of our trip.

Next time... I'll tell you all about Ogunquit beach in Maine.
