Head of the charles

Emily and I ventured to Cambridge to visit Dan recently (sans kids - you can't imagine how exciting that was, or maybe you can).  Our visit coincided with the head of the charles regatta which I had heard so much about but never been too.  Anyway, we watched some of the senior trials Sunday morning, pretty amazing stuff.  I can see why people love Crew, the 'whoosh' of the rowing, the rhythm of it all is pretty enchanting.

I have no idea who the people are, just loved watching them all!

Em & Dan look on

Crowd watching the races

Sunday mornings in Cambridge MA are pretty great, they close down a major street for a few blocks so local folks can use the roads, great time for families - kids learning to use their bikes etc.  This particular weekend was beautiful.  We had great food all weekend, we SLEPT (there are no words for how amazing that was!), hung out together and oh yeah, shopped until we just about dropped.  Quite literally.
