Just returned from a trip to Boston. My wife attended a Catholic educators conference there, and the kids and I did the tourist traipse: Children's Museum, Harvard, Science Museum, Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, and the Boston Marathon. We also saw some great, old friends and ate at some of our favorite restuarants: Addis Red Sea, New Shangai, Legal Seafood, Pizzeria Regina, and the Summer Shack. It was a lot of fun, but not much in the way of books or blues, although I did finish Dennis Lehane's Moonlight Mile, which was fun since it was set in Boston. I managed to miss Willie Clayton who was performing in West Roxbury, but plan to catch him here in Huntsville at the annual Downhome Blues Festival on Memorial Day Weekend. Heading back to Cape San Blas tomorrow to sign books at the No Name Cafe and the Lighthouse.
