Congratulations Lynn R.

When you think L.L. Bean, you think outdoors. In fact you barely open the main doors, where the handles are in the shape of oars, and you are greeted by kayaks. We know that if we are looking for quality products to survive  in winter we can head to L.L. Bean and we will find it. L.L. Bean is celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2012 and has some special stuff up their sleeves.

The L.L.Bean Bootmobile, is heading to several cities in celebration of this milestone and I am beyond ecstatic that it is starting in Boston from April 13-16.

L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Day on April 14th

10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Boston Common – Corner of Boylston & Tremont Streets

 Here are more details about the event

With the Bootmobile as the backdrop, expert guides from L.L.Bean’s Outdoor Discovery Schools® will lead various family-friendly – and free – outdoor activities on the Common. Participants will have the chance to try their hand at fly-casting, knot-tying and several backyard-style games, as well as hang-out at a mock campsite and learn a thing or two about tent set-up. These events are intended to get children and families excited about the outdoors and being active.

Mayor Menino will be there early to announce a free program: Boston Summer Kayak Series. Beginning June 16 in Millennium Park in West Roxbury, the participants will receive an introduction to recreational kayaking and learn basic skills and safety, followed by a trip out onto the Charles River.
