BOSTON ROOM WITH A VIEW – FENWAY 2011

In 2011, Conor and I went to Boston for a few days so we could see the Red Sox play at Fenway.  We stayed at the Commonwealth Hotel which is about three blocks from the park.  Here is the view we had from our third floor room.

The first morning in Boston, we went on a tour of Fenway.   They take you all over the park, and the tour ended at the Big Green Monster where we watched batting practice for that night’s game.  Conor is at the wall, wearing a green Celtics jersey and blue baseball cap.

That night, we went to our first game at Fenway.  Two-thirds of the way through, a very chilly wind came up and in a few minutes, it started to rain.  Conor was very excited because he had never actually been at a game where it rained!  That’s what living in California does to you!  The tarp came out and we waited for about half an hour before the rain stopped and the game re-commenced.  The Red Sox won!

Tickets to Red Sox games are VERY expensive and only available through ticket brokers unless you buy a season package, so the second night we sat in the bleachers.  Photo below shows Conor at the front of the bleachers during the Orioles batting practice.  He got a long fly ball that was hit to center left!    Grass stains on it and everything!  That’s him third from the right in the black t-shirt and blue baseball cap.
