quick little zip ride out to the coast: Boston Haba!
4 hrs 28 min saddle time
the flooding has gone down and I was able to ride 117 East through farmlands into Brighton, then down Comm Ave past BU; quick jog right to Fenway and Yawky Way. Only tours today and no vendors. The team is away on the road. Yawky gets me to cross through "The Fens" (park) and turning left at the MFA on Huntington past the Opera House and a right on Mass Ave then keep going to the water and bang a left to circle Pleasure Bay and Castle Island on the Haba! which still has the fortress and canons. Great place to see the tall ships when they are in town. Also, when an aircraft carrier comes in lined with sailors, it's quite a site!
disappointed about the mileage, I thought for sure I'd hit 62
