Spent way too much...

June 10th, 2013 at 03:30 am


Yesterday, I had the opportunity to sail on a schooner around Boston Harbor. My hubby, son, and a friend went. We tried to find a meter (free on Sundays), but of course all those spots were taken and had to spend $20 to park in a garage. We also spent $31 on lunch and tipped the crew on the schooner as well. In the end I spent $65 yesterday.

However, for a great day in the city and a free two hour sail, I think it was worth it! For us to spend money like that is extremely rare, so I suppose it is best not to fuss over it. I will shave a few dollars off my weekly "allowance" (covers groceries, gas, and spending) the next few weeks to make up the difference.

    Agreed. It's not every day you get to sail around Boston Harbor. I bet the views were great. Did you take any pics?

    Yes I did and "thought" I posted one here, but I don't see it?

    Sounds beautiful. Don't you hate to pay for parking? I know sometimes it has to be done, but it always irritates me.

    Sounds like you spent the money well. Sometimes you have to spend money and I can tell you it bothers me to do it, but life is often about experiences.

    In my head, i broke it down to $22 per person to have a wonderful day in Boston including harbor tour, lunch and parking. that sounds pretty reasonable to me! i'd be annoyed, too, if i couldn't get one of the free parking spots and i had to pay - that's just wrong! Smile thankfully, you picked the best day weather-wise this weekend.

    Yes, a good deal especially since the schooner is usually $42 per person!

    It sounds like a wonderful way to spend a weekend afternoon. Money well spent.

    Sounds like a lovely way to spend the day. I guess you could save a bit by packing a picnic lunch particularly if there are benches at harborside to watch boats. We've a couple of those promotion, fabric type backpacks to take frozen drinks, [keeps food cold] sandwiches and fruit for these events that the kids carry. The packs roll up small enough to fit in a handbag or even back pocket when empty
