Watch a Thunder Storm in the making!
Have you ever seen a cloud form upward to an anvil shape like this? If you see this, it will most likely become a Thunder Storm if conditions are right and it doesn't fall apart. Interesting to see ...
Take a walk on the Beach.
Winthrop has 5 beaches. A least two are large enough for walking with beautiful views and the calming sound of the surf.
Winthrop Arms Hotel
1 Review and 110 Opinions This is a great restaurant with rooms upstairs being the part of the Hotel. I understand there are...
Brother's Restaurant: Brother's Restaurant on Revere Street
The place is a little run down and the wait staff is kinda slow but the food is not bad. The prices are very reasonable. I recommend the burgers. Juicy and overhanging the bun, about the best I've found anywhere. I often find myself there when I want "comfort food". Nothing...
Winthrop Arms Hotel and Restaurant: Atmosphere and Great Food!
A long time hotel in the area that has been refurbished and brought back to status of a fine hotel and restaurant. Wonderful hospitality! Everyone always has a pleasant word and smile!
I love the filet, but also find the baked haddock, salmon or sole to be devine. Whatever...
Boston Harbor: Nature's Nightlife in Winthrop!
Unless you go to an event at one of the yacht clubs or the Elks or maybe a play at the Makers Playhouse, the only other nightlife that I know of is "watching the sun set". They can be beautiful! Here is one of our November Sunsets... that's Boston to your right, just beyon...
Unless you belong to an Elks...
Unless you belong to an Elks or a Yacht Club, go to Boston for the Night Life! If you're a member of one of these clubs anywhere else in the country, you'll be welcomed as a visitor for the day.
Airplane, Car, Bus or Boat. ...
Airplane, Car, Bus or Boat. Only two roads into town ... Both are Route 145 ... one entering from East Boston and the other exits from Revere. (unless you're coming IN that way)
They're talking about a Ferry from Deer Island to Boston here someday.
We do have buses that run on a regular and reliable schedule. It's also a small town in size and you can walk just about anywhere.
Here's the traffic in our backyard ... since we're right next to Logan Airport, that's an airplane coming in for a landing. It's flying in over the Winthrop Yacht Club.

The French Square: Winthrop's Mini-Mall
Just a little spot in town of local shops of all kinds; Bakery, banks, drugstore, liquer store, dollar store, little takeout restaurants, medical, dentists, beauty shops, shoe store & groceries. A little of everything within a small area of streets! Just like a "Square"!
With a little park right in the middle.
Small but very nice!
What to buy: Everyday items.

Feeding the Swans of Lewis Lake
A neighbor feeds the swans, duck & seagulls of Lewis Lake some bread. Just on the other side of the road is Boston Harbor.Frankly I don't think they should be fed table scraps like this. They should be fending for themselves in the summer months and it only makes them stay...
They don't all fly South!
Many Drakes, Buffalowhead, and Canadian Geese winter over here. It's around 9:00 am in this picture, but this is where many more than this will sleep overnight.
Stay Away from Logan Airspace ...
Unless you're in one of the airplanes.Massport often finds it necessary to kill birds that could fly into jet engines and cause malfunctions. Usually the casualties are starlings or seagulls. But on September 13, 2002, Massachusetts Port Authority officials that were trying...

If you're on the beach or out on a boat and an electrical storm comes in, get out of the water and head for cover (not under a tree silly) as soon as you can.Can happen very quickly too!I'm standing on my porch when I took this picture.It's on the blurry side but I had to...

It's not the usual area for tourists to come, so I can't think of any traps to get into here. Unless you looking for a Lobster trap!!

Luggage and bags: This is New England and has a variety of weather and more than one event can happen in one day. Since we're on the coast, count on a 10 degree difference (lower) and we're usually warmer than inland. But do remember, in Winter we still get snow and cold weather like the rest of the State and New England, only not as much.
Oh, in case you don't know (and not everyone does) the New England States consist of the top eastern corner portion of the United States: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. And there you have it!

Next the Jimmy Magg's on Bennington Street, East Boston is the entrance to the Belle Isle Marsh Reservation..Belle Isle Marsh Reservation preserves 152 acres of the 241- acre Belle Isle Marsh, Boston's last remaining salt marsh. A unique place to explore, the reservation...
Front or Backyard Gardens abound.....
Okay ... this might not be an acitivity for all, BUT I love to walk about town and view the gardens. Either in the front, side or back yards, as well as on the porches to greet a visitor. People put so much work into them and the Summer is too short not to walk about and...
Fishing in Winthrop
Bill went fishing with other members and came back with 3 large Cod. Kept us in fish fillets all winter this past year. Good eating!
If you're a fisherman, you know what you need!
Sailing at the Cottage Park Yacht Club Regattas
For the sailing regatta schedule, check out the website below at Cottage Park. There are three Yacht Clubs and the Elks with moorings in Winthrop Harbor. But Cottage Park is the most popular for the sail boat owners.
If you're a sailer, you know what you need for equipment!
We're on the Harbor side of Winthrop and when it get's as cold as it has this winter 2003, the salt water will freeze up on Boston Harbor.
The Ice Breaker Boat has to go out and break up the ice thru the Channel so ships can come & go to Boston. I didn't get a picture of...
Picnics, Concerts and Special Celebrations
The sense of being a part of a close community.
