After staying home for months, a search for a good bagel led us to the Longwood area in Boston.
Longwood is an amazing medical community in the Boston area that includes Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Joslin Diabetes Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Mass Mental Health Center, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This area has seen medical advances ranging from the first ever organ transplant to a heart surgery on a fetus while still in the womb. https://www.statnews.com/2015/12/21/longwood-medical-area/
A hundred years ago, this area had marshes and cows that supplied milk to the Children’s hospital. Now, thanks to the Emerald Necklace designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the densely populated area still enjoys lovely greenery.
After staying home for months, even this small outing seemed perfect. The sunshine, the greenery and even the sultry weather was soothing to the soul.
As we picked up our bagels, a kind employee walked out with a bowl of water for Zac, who thanked the man with a warm nuzzle.
