Red Sox win 8 to 2 and celebrate
The Boston Pops
We walked about 3/4 mile from our hotel to the river to watch the fireworks.
Lots of bunting
and we found that we could get into the Pops
A great moment when Boston Transit Officer Richard Donohue, who survived gunshot wounds battling the marathon bombers, came out on crutches and conducted the symphony.
With Jeannie are Casey and Natasha who also had gone to the Red Sox game. They were in the bleachers and baked.
Casey got some USA stickers for her face and received a surprise from the sun.
We also met a wonderful graduate student, Nidhi, from India. She showed us where to watch the fireworks.
Which were the best.
It was a wonderful day celebrating the Fourth.
