Thanksgiving Ducklings

It's Thanksgiving so I thought I would post some ducklings for those who don't like turkey. Here's a bird's eye view of the ducklings and a different view with some children riding the ducklings.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Wednesday Doorway

This beautiful doorway can be found at the Boston Athenaeum 10 1/2 Beacon Street.

James Hook Lobster Co.

The Hook Lobster Co. experienced a fire in early June and its building was a total loss. The company is currently working out of trailer pictured above. The gold lobster resting against the building is the weather vane that used to sit atop the original building.

Below is a menu board listing this week's prices.
