Adventure Report

Peter is recovering from his May 10th stroke in Spaulding Hospital in Charlestown, MA.  Visiting hours start at three.  This week I’ve had two adventures on my way.

I took the subway to the Boston waterfront, expecting to walk from there to Charlestown.  But I was disoriented and walked a mile in the wrong direction.

Back where I started, I followed the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a beautiful park that parallels the Boston waterfront. I was looking for the “Boston Harbor Walk” that goes to the Naval Yard in Charlestown where Spaulding (hospital) and the Constitution (boat) are located. The first two times I saw a sign for the walk, it led down a pier to the water and I had to retrace my steps.  When I finally figured out how to go, I still had a long walk. I arrived, one wilted wife.  I had walked over six miles.

The next day’s plan was less ambitious.  I took the subway to the foot of Beacon Hill, my first home in Boston, and walked along Charles Street.   Both it and I have changed, but the place where I bought my first car in 1965 is still there (although now a parking garage).

A shuttle to Spaulding leaves from nearby Mass General Hospital. This time I arrived in much better shape.

My next plan is to go to Spaulding early and walk around historic Charlestown until visiting hours begin.

(If I can find it.)

My goodness! I am impressed with you having walked six miles! I'm sure it was a bit frusrating, though.

Hope Peter is getting stronger and will be able to come home soon. In the meantime, stay safe out there on your own! (But have fun adventuring.)
