The final week of my scholarship trip has brought me to Boston....another first for me. I stayed in Beacon Hill in a beautiful old red brick building that was originally built as nurses accommodation for the hospital.

The weather has provided a week of contrasts ... from gorgeous sunshine on my first morning when I explored Beacon Hill, to windy and wet weather when I tried to see the rest of the city.

I felt much more at home in Boston than I did in San Francisco - possibly because of the similarities in the neighbourhood in which I was staying to England - most of the architecture is Georgian/colonial. Many of the homes were decorated for autumn or Halloween.

My week also managed to coincide with the Boston Red Sox winning the World may be apparent in one or two of my photos!!


I have a few more days based in Marblehead before returning to London. It is a beautiful little town and I'll have plenty of photos to post soon!



  1. Boston looks lovely. Great photos ~ looking forward to seeing more.
