Columbus Day at the Cranberry Bog

Edaville Cranberry Bog 3Today we went to the 2008 National Cranberry Festival™ at Edaville. The website I’ve just linked to is informative as well as ugly, so you can read about the trains and other things to see at Edaville even when it’s not CranFest.

Columbus Day is a day off for most of us in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, it was an off day for the Red Sox.

The money news was happier than the sports news. For the first time in quite a while, it cost less than $40 to fill our car’s tank. And it was a record day on Wall Street (in a good way).

Other highlights of the long weekend included East Boston Open Studios. 80 Beacon Street, the main location, was enjoyable in several ways: the art; the post-industrial building itself; and the view from it.
