Cities with water

September 18, 2008

I had a little extra time to wander around after the IBM conference ended today, so I ended up wandering along the Charles River as the sun set. Very pretty, and it reminded me that I like living in cities that are right on the water. Seattle. Washington, D.C. San Jose sadly lacks a waterfront, but the proximity of San Francisco somewhat compensates. Pittsburgh, even though I’m burned out on it from my PhD years there, had the Three Rivers, plus a great “entrance” to the city as you approach it from the airport.
I’m not quite sure exactly what it is I like about the water so much. I think it’s a combination of enjoying the play of light over and around the water and finding watching the wave patterns very relaxing. Either way, I can imagine that it would be nice to live in Boston (although I’m sure the winters would suck rocks).
