Bosty goes to Louisville

After Bosty heard that I was in Louisville, Kentucky, he got a little jealous and decided to go on his own trip. First he stopped by the Louisville Slugger Museum. He really liked the enormous bat out front and thought he could buy himself an enormous baseball at the gift shop. But alas, they had no giant baseballs.

Next he wandered around town and noticed a couple horse sculptures. He liked the way this one was painted to look like it was made of colorful puzzle pieces. Could he find anymore?

He sure could!

Next stop was the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. Bosty is quite the theatre enthusiast.

While going for a stroll, he noticed the KFC Yum! Center. For some strange reason he started craving fried chicken for lunch. Yum!

He walked by the river hoping to take a look at the beautiful sights overlooking the water. Unfortunately Louisville has had quite a bit of flooding from all the spring rain. The Ohio River was muddy from all the rainwater.

Bosty kept on strolling – he wanted to enjoy the cool, spring weather before going back to his hotel.

“Hmmm, I think I might know someone else who is in town. They’re not over here…”

“There she is!”

Bosty crept up right behind me. He’s always up to something!

Bosty Enjoys the Spring Weather

Bosty noticed some of the neighborhood dogs were being walked, and demanded that I take him for a walk as well. It was a gorgeous day outside, why not go out and enjoy the warm weather?

He loved taking a look at all the spring flowers that were blossoming.

He even found some flowers that he decided to name “Bosty Flowers” because they were purple just like him.

We spent the rest of the afternoon strolling down the city streets, imagining what the people were like that lived in the colorful townhouses.

Bosty goes to the Country

Bosty decided to head off somewhere that’s a little warmer this time of year (DC is still too chilly for him). So he wandered off to the south to spend some time in the country. He LOVED all the colorful chairs that were being sold by the side of the road.

And he was a bit confused when he noticed all the machinery lined up near his doggy hotel. What are they up to around here?

Lastly, he just had to get his picture by a tractor – to prove that he had gone off to the countryside. Silly Bosty.

Bosty goes to Charlottesville

He stayed at the Clifton Inn

and enjoyed lounging around on his room’s deck.

He liked the rustic decor – although the room was also decorated with a few birdcages. They reminded him a little too much of a pet shop.

And after a lazy day, he ran outside to catch the sunset.

Later in the week, Bosty decided to take a look at UVA’s campus. He dressed up for the occasion in a colonial hat…

Bosty sure does love Jeffersonian architecture!

He ended his trip by strolling through some countryside pastures.

Bosty goes to Hawaii to escape the cold

It was getting too cold in DC, so Bosty boarded a plane and flew away to Hawaii for the week. He decided to send me plenty of pictures of all the fun he was having – I’m quite jealous. Here he is enjoying the bright blue skies while posing next to a palm tree.

He’s loving how green the trees and plants are in wintertime.

Bosty keeps posing next to Hawaiian sunsets every night.

And he highly enjoys spending the day in a hammock, catching some rays (and z’s).

He’s been frequenting the beach to do some snorkeling and boating.

Staying by the water until the sunsets and it gets too dark to enjoy the scenery.

How about a drink with a mini umbrella in it? Don’t mind if I do!

He sure is having a grand old time – maybe he’ll bring me along next time?

Bosty goes to NYC

After arriving in NYC, Bosty hit the subway to get around town.

He wandered around Chinatown, looking at all the knick-knacks and souvenirs

and doing a bit of window shopping for the holiday season.

On his way to Central Park, he ran into part of a movie set on the street. He especially liked the enormous rocking horses on the set.

Bosty the Boston Terrier by collage artist Megan Coyle

Brrrr it was cold outside, but the trees in the park sure were toughing it out.

Before he knew it, it was time to leave. Bosty hailed a cab to head over to the bus station so he could get back to DC.

Bosty goes to London

Bosty the Boston Terrier by collage artist Megan Coyle

Bosty ended his England vacation with a trip to London. First up? A ride on the London Eye.

Then off to the British Museum – Bosty wanted to pose for the camera in front of the museum. After all, Hitchcock did film a scene there. The building’s practically a celebrity to Bosty.

And he just had to stop by Buckingham palace to say hello to the queen. He felt quite at home at the palace – the longer he toured the halls, the more he felt like royalty.

While wandering the streets, Bosty would run up to red telephone booths and press his nose against the glass. He’d look inside to see if anyone was making a phone call.

Piccadilly by night reminded him of NYC. Bright lights and lots of people kept him busy – he liked running up to greet every stranger that walked by.

Some evenings Bosty would perch by the Thames to watch the London skyline as the sun set.

While during the day he’d chase after double-decker buses and cars driving on the left side of the road.

Before leaving the city, Bosty had to say good-bye to Big Ben. Then he walked off, thinking about where he’d head next. Perhaps New York City? London did remind him of that big city back in the States.

Bosty goes to Windsor

Bosty caught the train to Windsor. He spent the beginning of the day window shopping.

Then he headed over to the castle to go on a tour. Since it was a dreary day, he thought he’d rather spend it inside and pretend that he was royalty.

He found some guards marching along one of the pathways. He followed behind them, pretending he was one of them.

He climbed up to one of the castle’s look-outs to take a look at the beautiful sights below.

And he had to get his picture taken by some of the beautiful architecture.

And he knew his trip to England wouldn’t be complete without an up-close picture of Bosty with a guard.

Bosty goest to Stratford-upon-Avon

The Adventures of Bosty by Megan Coyle

Bosty decided to hop on the train and head off to Stratford-upon-Avon. He wanted to say hello to Shakespeare’s neck of the woods since he happened to be in the area.

The Adventures of Bosty by Megan Coyle

He had his picture taken under the “Truly Scrumptious Tearoom” sign after he had his afternoon tea. After all, a traveler has to take a few posed pictures.

Next he wandered into a garden that had sculptures inspired by different Shakespearean plays. Here’s Bosty in front of the one inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I think he just liked the fact that the sculpture had a donkey in it.

After a long dog day, the sky began to turn yellow as the sun set.

And the night went by in a blur of excitement – with window shopping and enjoying the bright lights.

Bosty goes to Oxford

Bosty by collage artist Megan Coyle


So what’s next on Bosty’s trip? Wandering the streets of Oxford. He figured that after seeing Cambridge, he might as well mosey over to another college town.

Bosty by collage artist Megan Coyle

He spent a little time in the park, admiring the colorful trees of autumn. Hmm, how about a nice fall dip in the fountain?

Bosty by collage artist Megan Coyle

Next he decided to go to a few touristy places. Being the Harry Potter fan he is, Bosty checked out a few areas where they filmed scenes from the Harry Potter movie.

Including the Great Hall. He felt like a wizard’s hat was necessary for the occasion.

Then it was off to admire the architecture…

And end the day with an English sunset.
