The Storm That Took Boston and Us

Comments 3 Standard

Yes, Dear Reader,

we did it.   Hit Boston Common (gorgeous even in the rain), walked through Beacon Hill, past the Old State Building where we were reminded of Mary Dyer (Hollywood, why haven’t you made a movie about this remarkable woman?).  We walked the Freedom Trail a great walk through history (even in 50 mph gusts).   Lunch in the North End (the Italian section of Boston and, yes, you will see Tony Soprano look-a-likes here) at Locale (excellent- great look and even better pizza) with a visit to the first Roman Catholic Church St. Leonard in Boston and Paul Revere’s house.  On the way home, a friendly Boston Squirrel threatened to pounce leaving us to smile and then run for our lives- they can pounce, right?

  1. What a ride! Well, truthfully I am a wee bit disappointed that you did not ride through the streets on horses, retracing the trail of Paul Revere. Step it up sister. xoxo
