One of B’s co-workers told him about the Head of the Charles Regatta, a two day rowing race that takes place on the Charles River, so we headed to Harvard Square over the weekend to check it out. The race takes place every year in October and athletes from all over the world participate. I couldn’t believe how many spectators gathered to watch!
The bridge was packed so we stood on the bank of the Charles River with our hot apple cider. It was fun to see all of the rowers zip past us throughout the day. At one point, we thought that someone was barking orders like a pirate — but maybe we were just imagining that because we’re weird. Totally a possibility.
I have to admit, we aren’t into rowing so the race wasn’t that exciting for us, but we loved the atmosphere, and all of the street food. I’ll take clam chowder and hot cider any day! Plus, walking around Harvard Square during Autumn is gorgeous.
Have you ever been to Head of the Charles?
