Summer is certainly hurtling by us - here we are nearly halfway through already.   I hope that your summer has been full of all sorts of exciting adventures so far.   Boston is truly a wonderful city in the summetime. Totally walkable, lots of waterfront and loads of cool things to do. Aren't we lucky!? Try something new this week - maybe an outdoor summer movie; stroll around the Greenway and frolic in the fountains; enjoy the views at Castle Island, or visit the Boston Harbor Islands.
