Boston History Tour October 2018: Day 2


The day began early. 3am early. And no chance of getting back to sleep with a Doug bouncing around. So we read, watched TV, ate breakfast, then second breakfast, showered and finally left the house at 7.30 to get to the Duck Tour. Here are the boys being amazed at a real life fire hydrant!



We were on Red Sox Nathan on the first boat of the day. The trip down was fun as part of the orange line was closed. But the shuttle buses were brilliant! We stepped off a train, onto a bus, then onto the next train. The UK could learn from that rail replacement service! Back to the tour. Not many photos as the windows were down but the tour gave us a great intro to the town and a chance to drive the boat!



Concentrating.



Not concentrating.



Once off the boat we had a wander towards Boston Common as the boys had energy to burn off. Past Copley Square and Trinity Church (I think)



The Library. We'll be going back to see the Singer-Sargent murals. And I'm a librarian so we have to. It's the law.



The tortoise and the hare.



More Trinity Church.



And in to the park.



It was the walk through town, the park and the common that made us all start to love Boston! It's a very lovely, friendly, easy going city and so very pretty.



And they have lots of statues of animals. Watch out for ducks!



Then it was onto the common for a wander to the frog pond and the tadpole playground.



Frog statues.



From here we headed towards Little Italy for lunch. Stopping for a quick photo by the Massachusetts State House.



And to Regina Pizzeria.



Hungry and happy.



Happy and hungry.



Happy.



The special - pulled pork.



Margarita.
Including tip this came to $51.



How many pizzas, Tim?!



We headed back for a rest in the afternoon and picked up a few bits in City Feed and Supply. I managed to confuse and amuse the staff by saying ‘cheers'!
In the evening we headed back out for a wander to Jamaica Plains lantern festival. Here's a few of the houses around these parts.



This area is very pretty. There's a plan for a local wander one morning to see a bit more of the area but so far we definitely like it here.






The sun was just setting as we arrived. Lanterns were being lit and the Boston Symphony Orchestra were just starting to play. We drank hot cider and ate popcorn and just took in the surroundings and friendliness of the people in the neighbourhood. Both the boys have already asked to come back soon. Yup, we've fallen for Boston!

We loved Boston. The Library is amazing. We also did the Duck Tour.

Have you been up the tower yet? We did during the day then went up another evening for a meal in the restaurant. It looks so different at night.

You also have Fenway park. This is a zoomed in shot from the tower. I would love to have seen a game but the prices were ridiculous.

Went to Boston during the summer and loved it. Did the Fenway Park tour and it was great. Loved the common and the park and the city in general.
