Our Freedom Trail adventure second half started at Faneuil Hall (pronounced like Daniel … I learned) and I do not know why I didn't get a better photo of it besides the one I've already posted in a previous blog. Oh well. Anyway ...this was a hike mainly because the stops are further apart … and once we crossed the bridge over to Charlestown, it seemed all uphill to Bunker Hill from there and my poor knees were killing me that day (thankfully the only day). We didn’t have such a pretty day this day, misty off/on, dreary and foggy but it could have been worse and we still managed to have a great day.
|Old Corner Bookstore which now houses, as you can see, a|
Chipotle, however, it is not open for touring. Built in 1711 and
published and produced some major authors' books.
|Thought this building was cool ... look how it curves!|
|Paul Revere's House and oldest wooden structure in Boston.|
|I just thought this old car, which can be rented to tour Boston, was pretty cool!|
|The misty, dreary day actually made for a nice pic, I think!|
|This little Chocolate Shoppe caught our eye and had an amazing Chocolate Drink to sample|
with a demonstration of how it was made back in the day ... worth a stop!
|This was a very moving Memorial ... we had to stop for a moment.|
|That tall structure in background is the Bunker Hill Monument which|
was the inspiration for the Washington Monument in DC ... interesting, huh?
|Cool old Firehouse|
|Enjoyed the free museum at Bunker Hill ... learned a lot!|
|We took the Water Shuttle (use is included in weekly Subway Pass)|
back across the Bay to Boston ... I didn't take a pic of the old and dank
shuttle boat as it wasn't anything special but hey it was a ride.
|Thankfully this was the ONLY day we had with this kind of weather ... didn't stop us though|
after we got back we walked over to Beacon Hill (next blog).
