I decided to take our dog Moose for a long walk through Boston, at night. We set out on our journey just before sunset from the Charlestown Navy Yard and meandered through the Financial District to the other side of Back Bay. By the time we made it back, four hours later, I had an exhausted Pointer and a camera with a few good photographs. It was one of those good walks where we did our best to walk up streets we had never been on and cut through alleys we had yet to explore. By the end of the night, I found a bunch of great places to take great photos.
Moose is sporting his very cool red leather collar from Woofwerks. This is his going out on the town collar, for when he wants to impress the Boston girl dogs. Or he got it because I thought it would look fantastic in photos like these.
Explore Boston With Your Dog
Boston has plenty of areas well worth exploring, your dog just makes for great company and a good reason to take a good long walk. Here are a few ideas on where to get started or find something new in Boston to explore.
Not to find one’s way in a city may well be uninteresting and banal. It requires ignorance — nothing more.
But to lose oneself in a city — as one loses oneself in a forest — that calls for a quite different schooling.
Then, signboard and street names, passers-by, roofs, kiosks, or bars must speak to the wanderer like a cracking twig under his feet in the forest.
Boston might be one of the most enjoyable cities to walk around with a dog. Each neighborhood is fantastic and has it’s own unique style, including one of my favorite areas, Charlestown and the Navy Yard.
