In the vernacular of my people here in Mass., it was wicked windy yesterday.
And what’s the best thing to do when it’s wicked windy? Well, if you’re part of the Gardner family, you hit the road and check out the rolling hills of Pope John Paul II Park in Dorchester and bust out the kites. I ran into this troop of a family while getting weather art for the Herald to capture the wildness of the wind Saturday afternoon. Here’s some shots of them in action.
