Sister Roddy and Tracey and I took the Amtrak Downeaster to Boston yesterday for a leisurely stroll through all of Boston’s best Italian restaurants and grocery stores. A slice of the best pizza in Boston and a clam shell [pastry], some balsamico, some parm, a 4 course lunch, an espresso, another few cannoli(s)  and some more goodies at yet another quintessential Italian store…. What a great day, not even the gray sky deterred us!
