Waiting in line for the 7:15 ferry to Woods Hole. Vineyard Haven Harbor.
The new freight boat, Woods Hole, gleams in the early morning sun.
My first ride on the Woods Hole - spacious, clean, and all was quiet first thing on a Saturday morning.
View from the freight deck.
First stop - a visit to my friend Faith Chase in Cambridge, a family friend who has been in my life since I was a little girl, a good fifty-plus years, now.
Early spring on the Charles River
Then, after swinging down to Southie to fetch Wynter, on to Bunratty's Saturday afternoon session up in Reading.
All are welcome at this table, a table whose constituents on this particular Saturday afternoon resembled many nights, in years past, the table at Tommy Doyle's in Harvard Square; a mini-reunion of sorts. Rosanne, Levi, Liam, David, Wynter.

Rosanne, Levi, Liam. Levi's face says it all.
Liam and David; a friendship and musical alliance of long-standing.

A rollicking last set.
What should appear here are photos from the Broadside on Saturday night - Bugsy, Mike, Diane, Wynter, along with family and friends of above, but somehow - being the end of a long day, I suppose - the camera never made it out of the bag. But it was great to be downtown on a Saturday night (with the extra bonus of my old stand-by parking space sitting there waiting for me - shh...I'll never tell).
Another favorite - and welcoming - table: St. Mary's in Brookline, Sunday morning Mass.
Then, Sunday afternoon, at Colin K's urging, on to the slow session - at the Canadian American Club in Watertown, my first time there. Great to see Tara again - it had been too long (sorry to have forgotten almost everyone's name!).
All are welcome to this circle.
Then on to this table full of friends at the Chatham Squire: Jonathan, Debra, Rose, Clayton, Greg, Peig, and John.

Another welcoming table: St. Paul's in Harvard Square - noon Mass on Monday.
A post-Mass table full of friends, featuring Chip, David, Sam, Mario, Ann, and Fr. George - it's always great to reconvene here.
And what would a five-session tour be without Monday night at the Greenbriar?
The pre-session/slow session, Boston's oldest slow session, preceded by a fun meet-up/dinner with Julia, Colin and young Finbar Michael.
