The fens are marshes, I guess, here in the middle of Boston. They must be part of the watershed for the Charles River. I saw this bird in the fens, which I am not familiar with, but it must be some kind of water fowl. Unfortunately, I did not have my Rebel with me, or my Olympus, just my iPhone, so I couldn't really zoom in and get a clear shot of him. I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but he's pretty big. He almost looks like a black heron... definitely bigger than any of the geese that were hanging around that day.
I have so many other photos, I can't keep up with them. Here are some pictures from inside the old South Church on Boylston Street, where I went last night for an AA meeting:
That's all for now. I still have some pictures from my afternoon with Paul and Cristiano on Saturday, which I will have to upload tomorrow. I'm sorry I'm not being vigilant about chronology, but there are just so many pictures and so little time to share them with all three of you that read this! :-)
