Thanks again for these nice pictures or Beacon Hill, mrnyc!

In my opinion, Beacon Hill is the prettiest neighbourhood and area in the city of Boston. Streets like Acorn are simply amazing. Whe felt much peace walking along those streets. Beacon street, and those pretty houses in front of Boston Common, was very charming too, like Charles street. I miss it so much...

And what about Cheers? A very enjoyable bar very well known for all of us.

I didn´t know it is possible to cool off at the Frog Pond. Well, last time we stayed in Boston was in the middle of a long winter. Lovely season!

Simply amazing and pretty area. I´ve no more words to say.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

^ thank you fellow danny (im a dan too).

i was surprised about the frog pond too because on the rainy days we walked by it had no wading signs. along with the frog pond swimmers i had some more sunny day pics of beacon hill and people riding the swan boats, but i guess i accidently deleted them. oh well next time.

and yes boston is very relaxing to stroll around for sure, even in the summer rain. of course madrid certainly is too!
