I think I'll go to Boston...

Greetings! I know it's been a while, but I have been traveling ... to Boston! I have been having an absolutely wonderful time! This past weekend, I flew in on Friday and spent the weekend with some close friends. I'm still in town for some other things, but I thought it would be fun to spend a few extra days since I have never been! So, here's what's been going on so far.

Mel and I went in to Boston Saturday morning. We spent the morning getting mani/pedis and walking down Charles Street to the Boston Public Garden. They have this adorable Swan Pond going on. And I managed to capture this awesome rainbow photo. Guess that guy was a leprechaun in disguise.

They had some cool monuments to historic figures throughout. I liked this one of Washington.

The flowers were enormous! Talk about a good time to visit.

Jon joined us for lunch. I had an amazing lobster roll. Oh. my. goodness. The lobster here is ridiculous. We then walked down through Quincy Market, which had this Irish street performance going on.

This was down closer to the water by the aquarium.

We saw the Red Sox owner's yacht, which was huge!

We finished off the afternoon by heading down to another harbor area and watched the views at this rooftop bar/restaurant. They had these awesome fall hurricanes. Umm.. I may try to do this in a smaller form somewhere. :)

Aren't they awesome? So cute!

We met up with one of their friends for dinner in Little Italy. I don't have any pictures, but Little Italy consists of tons of these small Italian places, all of which look and smell amazing. There are also lots of cookie and cannoli shops throughout. I have been very well-fed while here.

On Sunday, we decided to head to Revere beach for a little walking. And saw the ships come sailing in (on Christmas day in the morning... no, not really. obvi).

We took a stroll on Newbury Street downtown. Newbury is this great shopping district.

I love this picture of the old brick houses. Just so pretty. We ended up running into 2 of the girls I danced with in school. It was so random and unexpected. And awesome. :)

I believe this is the Old South Church (as opposed to the Old North Church). There are old historic churches throughout the area.

I also loved how this picture of the Prudential tower turned out.

The public library.

Fancy-pants hotel (not where I am staying).

And look what we found?! Even though we have these back home, we decided to stop in.

The T is Boston's transportation system. We used this quite effectively over the weekend.

And onto the historic sites. This is where some famous, historic people are buried.

Like Samuel Adams.

And I did get a chance to see the Old North Church (aka - one if by land, 2 if by sea).

So, that has been what's going on with me. If I get a chance to take more interesting pics, I'll make sure to post those later. I hope all of my lovely readers have been doing well. Explore any fun and interesting cities lately?
