We've found ourselves on this tiny plane traveling from Detroit to Washington DC. I couldn't stand up straight in the aisle and was wedged into the seat so tight there was no way I was coming out of there. I "let" Eddy have the window seat so I could straighten one leg into the aisle when the one flight attendant was not walking about.
I'm not one to complain, but if I was going to, this would have been one of those times. We made our connecting flight to Boston alright. But the one "checked bag" went on to South Carolina instead.

But, it's all about the experience. And, it was an experience!
The hotel is located just two blocks from Copley Square. Home to Trinity Church and the John Hancock Building.

This memorial area has been set aside to pay tribute to the lives lost and the courageous people that came to the rescue of many more.
Being from the Detroit area, I can say that Pride in much of anything right now is almost non-existent. And when it comes to Gay Pride, oh sure there is a festival, but it has a long way to go before it could compare to any other Pride that I've been to.
So seeing this flag flying on a church in the middle of the Back Bay District in Boston, gave me hope that there is something to be proud of.
And this year Boston has a lot to be proud of. I am happy that I was able to spend Pride weekend in such a warm welcoming city.
In the next post, we'll visit the Historic side of Boston. And you know that includes a cemetery or three.
