Walking the Charles with Charles


Who wouldn’t want a grand walking tour of the world famous, Charles River with none other than our very Design Associate Charles? One of my secondary roles is serving as a Wellness Liaison. As a wellness initiative, the Wellness team and I had the Boston Store team participate in an hour-long walking tour of Boston / Cambridge’s notorious Charles River.

The Charles is always filled with families, runners, dogs and activity. Harvard and MIT row houses line the shores. Although no local Bostonian would recommend swimming in the Charles, most would encourage visitors to take in the historic sites along the Esplanade.

We lucked out in terms of the weather. It was not 90 degrees and pouring rain or hail sized golf balls with 100% humidity, and we were not limited by the reliably unreliable Boston T.

This group activity served a nice change compared to our denser, typical Sunday morning meeting topics, and the team seemed to enjoy the experience. Selfies were taken, sunnies were encouraged, summer tunes were played, and we took in some good old New England salty, but fresh air and started our Sunday Funday at Room & Board Boston. #R&Bboston #ontrend
