Cemetery where Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and Mother Goose are buried
Occupy Boston- their chants didn't make sense as "down with Verizon, no war, and I don't like banks" were all chanted simultaneously
Sunday afternoon in Lexington, where "the shot was heard around the world."
We enjoyed a beautiful day in Lexington, the weather was perfect, leaves were in full color, and I was surrounded by history. Lexington and Walden Pond might be my favorite parts of Boston
Getting a birthday hug from a Red Coat!
Harvard Square- touching the toe of John Harvard supposedly brings good luck. Why not try?
Ahh Fenway! Someday I'll come to Boston when baseball is actually in season!
Sailing on the Charles River
Yep, sailing! Ahoy, we sail! Whit's friend goes to MIT and students there can certify to take the sailboats out on the river. We all had a chance to hold the sail and steer the rudder. Sailing on the Charles was so fun and such a thrill!
Siri sailed! (I got my iPhone for my birthday just a few days before, so she came everywhere with me, including sailing.)
After sailing, we took a tour of MIT. We saw some pretty cool labs. MIT is sure interesting and full of innovations and budding technologies. It was a bit science overload, but cool.
All in all, we had a great weekend! I still have to go back to see a game at Fenway, tour the USS Constitution, and run Heartbreak Hill--plus Mike's Pastry has some pretty good canolis!
Boston was just the beginning of birthday celebrations...Happy Birthday to me!!!!
