Travel Tuesday: Boston
It is hard for me to consider Boston “travel” since I grew up about 20 minutes north of the city but we went there for a visit this past June. In fact, we coordinated a gathering of other “childfree by choice” people that I had met back in 2001. Some lived in the area and others traveled in like us.
Our rally point was the cathedral of Boston, Fenway Park. Where we saw an amazing 14 inning game against Oakland. Of course we met for beer and food first at Boston BeerWorks.
Michael and I stayed at the Millenium, across the street from Faneuil Hall. A sort of late birthday splurge. It is also a short walk from the North End and the Aquarium. We just happened to be there the day after Sarah Palin made a visit and, while standing in front of the Paul Revere House, told everyone that he rode a horse with a lantern, while ringing a bell and shooting a musket to warn the BRITISH. It was AWESOME. And if you want to see a funny clip, look up Steven Colbert and what he did with the topic.
We did the Freedom Trail (Michael’s idea), the Aquarium (me, I LOVE the penguins), the Pru, Fenway, saw the new Garden (Bruins were in the playoffs).The group split up for various activities. Some wanted to spend time in Salem. We wanted to spend our time in Boston. But it was great and everyone got to see everything they wanted. I didn’t take a lot of pictures. I don’t know why.But I cheated and some of these are from an older trip we took in 2005, for my cousins wedding.
