Refusing to mope about being stuck in town, I set out on a lunch date yesterday with my mom at Pickering Wharf. She wanted to be able to see the water so I took her to Victoria Station. Last time I was here, we had dinner out on the patio for Mike's birthday in August. The scene was a bit different now and definitely demonstrated winter's kiss.
After a little down time at home at the condo, Mom dropped me off at the commuter rail station. I was headed over to the North End to see Daisy. Life's been so busy for the both of us lately that I hadn't seen her in way too long and was having withdrawals. However, before I could get my Daisy fix, I had to deal with a wee problem.....missing my train. Yep, I was the cool kid literally running after the train with a look of disappointment as she realized it really was too late. With an hour to kill until the next train, I decided to walk over to the Gulu-Gulu Cafe up the street. Outside of the cafe is the Samantha from Bewitched statue. She looked too cute holding an ornament in front of a large (also decorated) tree.
I had better luck catching my train the next time and happily made my way over to visit with Daisy. After a failed attempt at the $6 spaghetti & meatball night at Prezza (too crowded), we ended up on Tresca on Hanover St. In between being Chatty Cathy's, we enjoyed a couple of drinks and a pizza. She took the pics this night so I will leave it to her to recount on III :)
