Adventures with Ames ~ Breakfast at Woodward and then a picnic with a little civil disobedience at Walden Pond... Champagne and lobster rolls!

August 15th, 2011

Ames brought us down to Boston to check out Woodward their in-house bar/restaurant.  In addition to a tour of the hotel they also planned a little adventure. It was a day filled with both history and modernity.  Ames and Boston are full of amazing collisions between the past and now.  From the founding of the colony to the birth of the revolution... you are never far from a vaguely remembered bit of your high school American History class.

We started the day with breakfast at Woodward. Their breakfast sandwich is delicious... eggs and bacon sandwiched between wonderfully fluffy biscuits.
Heading out from breakfast we passed through the lobby and caught a glance at the ceiling. It really captures that juxtaposition between old and new perfectly. The barrel-vaulted ceiling is original to the building and is amazingly well preserved. Ames has reinterpreted the traditional chandelier with this exploded "Mirror Cloud" installation from Studio Roso.
The art continued with a trip up to Lincoln, MA and a tour of the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. This piece on the roof is from their exhibit of Ursula von Rydingsvard whose massive sculptures are primarily hewn from redwood boards with a circular saw.
Then it was on to Walden Pond. Though modern transportation has made it far less remote, the State Park has preserved much of the idyllic pastoral serenity that inspired Thoreau.
We also engaged in a few acts of civil disobedience and popped a few (6) bottles of Veuve Clicqout.
Woodward sent us with some boxed lunches for a little picnic.
Maine lobster rolls, champagne, an apple, and bag of Cape Cod chips... a very New England picnic. It was all part of a great outing before heading back to Ames for some cocktails and a fabulous dinner at Woodward.
