Have you been thinking of traveling to Europe this summer so you can take long strolls by the water, sit and have a romantic dinner outside, and enjoy architecture from the 1700s? No need for an airplane flight. Just go to Boston's gigantic Harborwalk, which snakes along the waterfront for a delightful, endless stroll. Here are some photos. Above is near Lewis Wharf in the North End.
How beautiful is this?
Go in the evening, and the light streams through the trees. So beautiful. And so close!
Lewis Wharf was renovated long ago, but the Harborwalk has made it an integral part of the endless stroll.
Old meets new.
Like I said...the endless stroll.
Lots of water fountains that kids can play in.
These are not marketing pictures. This is just how it looks! And it goes on and on and on.
I'm not making this up. I just roamed around with my camera. Some 30 feet below this dog, cars and trucks are roaring under the city.
Customs House Tower and the super fun computerized water fountain.
The water jets move all around and the kids chase them.
Ah, but some try to hedge their bets. Go to the waterfront! You will not be disappointed. Head to the water's edge, and go right, or go left. It's all awesome, and will just keep getting better.
TechStars Demo Day was yesterday at the Royale Nightclub in Boston. It was an amazing event, a celebration of entrepreneurship, teamwork, and just plain passion and hustle.And while the saying goes "There's no I in team", there is Katie Ray behind the scenes helping all 12 TechStars 2011 teams work together to build their companies and get the message out in style, with clarity, simplicity, and heart! Oh, and did I mention that they are all great businesses that all have committed funding? (I invested in two -- Ginger.io and Memrise) Katie, I know you well, and had high expectations. Very high. TechStars 2011 blew past these and never looked back. Congratulations to all the teams, to the TechStars staff, especially to the TechStars mentors, and to everyone who took part in a great TechStars Boston 2011 session. Here's a few more photos....I'll post more later.
I'm headed to an undisclosed location with family and kids. Intelligence reports indicate warm and sunny. Back Tuesday.
I'm spending this week on Cape Cod, and I've been really surprised how much work I've been able to do on my iPad with addition of two inexpensive items: A Brookstone Stand -- $49 iPad 1 or 2 -- (I can't link text in the iPad version of the mail client, so here's the link in all its glory: http://www.brookstone.com/home-office-desk-accessories_x-stand-ipad-tablet.html?=productDetail%7CCXConsiderationProductsFDT%7C9516545) , and the Apple Wireless Keyboard (Google it!) that now comes standard with desktop Macs. (and which I've been using for years)
