We took a GART (Great American Road Trip) to Boston this summer. Oldest daughter was moving there for Grad school, so we went out there to help find an apartment. It was an awesome trip.
My wife was training for the Detroit Marathon, so she was getting up crazy early to get her training run it. Plus it was really hot, so the earlier the run the better. I took her down to a running path along the Charles River on the Cambridge side, she headed off on her run, and I found a spot by MIT to fly from.
There were lots of rowing teams practicing, and you can see one in the photo above, so here you have it; Boston as seen from across the Charles River in Cambridge.
