Urban recce run: One yellow welly in Boston Harbour

The first social recce run in the series. Courtesy of  Running Concierges, Bridget and Paul from the Westin Waterfront Hotel, a group of us from the 2014 Ceres conference gathered in the early morning drizzle for a three mile run around Boston Harbour.


Amongst the many stars and stripes along the seafront, a particularly large, flurrying flag was found within the archway of the Boston Harbour Hotel. This architectural element was put into the design so that Bostonians could continue to have their view through the building and across the water. 20140501-225805.jpg

And through the “T” (the icon of the MBTA Subway system), another flag, next to the ship I would later take around the harbour to learn more about the city’s history and planning for a future dealing with climate risk and the threat of floods.
