Instead of walking up Charles Street, I walked up Beacon to the Fiedler Bridge. It was wicked crowded; I had no idea what was going on, but as I got closer, I could hear music. "Ah. Must be something going on at the Hatch," I sagely observed to myself.
Then I heard a song I recognised; it sounded like "Real Emotions" by Los Lonely Boys. As it turned out, that's exactly who it was. I like them; I've had their CD for at least a year. So completely accidentally, I got to see them play live.
I continued across the Salt & Pepper Bridge, and up Main to Central Square. I passed the Cambridge Savings & Trust where the bird's nest is...this time, I got a look at one of the residents:
A little further up Main, I happened to see a behind-the-scenes part of a wedding; the newlyweds sneaking out with the photographer for some portraits.
I was really kind of mesmerised by the bride's dress. She was Indian, and it featured a bare midriff, which sounds sort of "different" and perhaps strange...but it was absolutely gorgeous on her. She also had a jewelled hair ornament on her part, and a bouquet of bright red roses. It was completely non-traditional...and yet, still classic. Beautiful.
And now, I'm off to enjoy my Sunday walk.
