I am interested in old roads. I walked the pilgrimage road to Santiago and I walked from Boston to New York on the Lower Boston Post Road about which I wrote a whole series of articles on another website of mine called Walking the Post Road.1 This website does not work as well as it used to for technical reasons. Many of these entries are now available on this website-they all have the tag ‘walking the post road’. Any that are not here at present will eventually be transferred over if you can’t take the aggravation of the old web site!This series of articles will be about walking closer to home. Rambles about Boston in both senses of the word: rambling as in walking, and rambling as in going on at length about something. Two things I am pretty good at, only I hope that all my “rambles” have a purpose and are not so random as to be meaningless. I also plan to walk the Upper Boston Post Road at some point and those entries will appear here under the tag “Upper Boston Post Road.” Feel free to get in touch with comments, criticisms, or queries.
