Rooftop Pool

Scenes from the roof top pool at The Colonnade Hotel in Boston.

This Monday, Daniela and I had work off, and instead of going to the beach, (sand+sun block=unhappy rachel.) I had read about the RTP (roof top pool!) ontop of the Colonade Hotel, and it said that for $30, non-hotel guests could use the pool for a day. So up we went to the roof, bags packed with chips, sandwiches, trashy magazines, and towels. The youngster at the desk said they were full, and that we wouldn't be able to get in. He must have felt awful for us, because we just sort of stood there. I think I might have teared up a little. Finally he said, just go in.


So we didn't have to pay. And we spent the whole day there, sipping Mojitos. It was marvelous. We even made friends with a pretty lady from Venezuela!

PS- check out the dude's mullet.
You may have to click to enlarge, but it's worth it.
