The first stop was the Public Garden where we took a swan boat ride.
The Sprog was telling me that the sun was in his eyes when I snapped the photo. Oh well, you get the idea. It was a fun, silly little thing to do and entirely enjoyable. The last time Shannon and I rode the swan boats we were little kids. I was so pleased that the three teenagers got into the spirit of it and had fun. There wasn't an eye roll the entire day.
Next we walked over to the graveyard at the Park Street Church.
We paid our respects at Paul Revere's grave.
It's fascinating to look at the old grave markers, read the names and ages and speculate about what might have happened.
Then we walked over to Faneuil Hall for lunch and tourist shopping.
A cart selling water color prints caught the Sprog's and my eye so we decided to pick out a picture to take home as a memento of our trip. We settled on this one of the swan boats. I went to pay for it ($10) and the gal asked if I'd be interested in buying 3 for $25. I declined. Then she offered to sell me 2 for $15. So at that price, what the heck?
Sprog picked out this one to bring home too.
After ice cream (everyone else) and a cannoli (me) it was time to brave the "T" (Boston subway system) at rush hour and make our way home.
It was hot and I was dressed more for trying to stay comfortable than for making a fashion statement so it didn't bother taking an outfit picture. Well, really I forgot in the morning and by the time I got home in the evening I had been sweating so much that there was no way I was going to take a picture of myself. Tomorrow I'll be heading back into Boston to meet up with Stacy for dinner. I'll try to remember to get a picture of my outfit before I head out into the heat.
