And to think that I saw it on Newbury St

For my birthday, my dear friend Laura treated me to a glorious afternoon in Copley Square,  lunch, and a stroll down Newbury St. The weather was a balmy 65 degrees, and the buildings shone in the sun.

We stopped in at all the churches, particularly
the Trinity Church and the Church of the Covenant, which is finally on the National Registry of Historic Places. Built in 1865 in Gothic Revival Style, the church has stained glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany from the 1890s and spectacular details which delight the eye.
The baptismal font is amazingly beautiful

I wish I had a telephoto lens to capture the intricacy and beauty of the stained glass windows

We also saw a display of antique crank sewing machines which were fantastic at Sanford Brown College.

We tried to find Tappas to have lunch, but they didn't open until 5, so we stopped in at a bistro and had a delicious lunch nearby. It was a great way to celebrate!
