More from New Year's Weekend
It was unseasonably warm which had families out in droves. Everyone was so excited to be there and the line at the skating rink in Boston Common was a long, patient one.
The sculptures were magnificent but drippy as the sun warmed them, softening their details. George Washington was having a difficult time crossing the Delaware, but the dolphins took the excess water in stride.
We watched the midnight fireworks from the harbor which was unique, but I envied the masses on the pier who were counting down the seconds only to break into a roar as the clock struck the hour. It was quiet on our boat. They didn't do a countdown or play Old Ang Syne. Next time, I want to be with them.
