Downtown Boston really is small.
An infusion of 1.5 million people has an impact.
Tuesday we hosted a duck-boat parade that started near the place that the Boston Marathon ends, on Boylston Street.
The duck-boats made their slow way down Boylston and took a left on Tremont Street, ending at City Hall Plaza.
That morning I left my apartment at 9.30 and was joined by several hundred people using my route to get to the parade route.

My 301st consecutive posting, committed to 5,000.
Time is 12.01am.
On Thursday, Boston’s temperature will reach a high of 39* with a feels-like temperature of 32* under cloudy skies, with showers predicted for later in the day.
According to the Blog’s “Winter Calendar, Jan2 to Feb13,” we have only six days remaining to our winter.
The “Winter-Spring Shoulder Season, Feb 14 to April 7” is our next calendar; our next measurement of time as we march the thirteen plus years to the 5,000th and final posting.
Dinner tonight is a Hot Pot.
Question of the Day
Why don’t you share your photos of the parade?
Answer to Question
Fortunately there was little need.
The only disturbance I know of was a fistfight on Salem Street in my North End caught on someone’s cell and broadcast.
And remember that the weather totally cooperated with the event, sending a spring-like day to add comfort to the joy.
The need for toilets was exasperated by the time spent at the parade.
As was the need for public transportation enhanced at the time the parade ended, the cue for all visitors to head for the T at the same time.
At least the arrival was disbursed over several hours.
Good Morning on this Thursday, the 7th day of February.
We talked about how small Boston is. One can walk from one spot to another in just a few minutes.
And then we spent our time taking pictures, organizing them, publishing them here, and writing comments.
Now it’s time to go.
