It’s Spring! and this week’s photo challenge inspires us to share our photos of the theme. We’ve been celebrating spring south of Boston for a week or two, so here are a few photos that illustrate the theme.
Cold spring Red Sox games bring out the clam chowder and cocoa vendors.
The Boston Marathon is a very visible harbinger of the season.
Flowers! My favorite sign of spring!
Saturday, most of Boston turned out to watch the Red Sox’ victory parade through town. In this post, I’ll show images of the team and duck boats – later I’ll have a post with photos of some of the more colorful fans out celebrating.
I’m from Oregon, so of course, the gallery must start with Oregon native and Oregon State University alum Jacoby Ellsbury. Looking right at me, obviously. Probably admiring my Oregon State hoodie. I’m not sure what those other people were thinking, wearing red and blue.
One of the team owners (someone near me said it was Tom Werner, but I can’t be responsible if that’s incorrect) holding the championship trophy, and at right is Officer Steve Horgan, made famous by this photo, and re-enacting the moment at which he earned his 15 minutes of fame.
Sox ace Jon Lester.
Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and his daughter.
Mike Carp doing “the sprinkler,” with Xander Bogaerts partially hidden at right.
David “Big Papi” Ortiz, with confetti raining down, rapping from the back of a truck.
Shane Victorino, admiring the hardware from a previous season.
Hubby and I went to Georges Island outside Boston Saturday, and spent an enjoyable few hours wandering the grounds of Fort Warren, and watching some vintage baseball. Teams from Massachusetts and Maine competed in games using the same rules (and equipment) used during the Civil War.
This week’s Travel Theme is sweet. I think the photo speaks for itself.
