Historic Boston

A few weeks back, I had a business trip that took me to Boston. What a city! I had time after work each day to walk around and see the sites. There is more history than I could take in. I walked the freedom trail and got to see all the revolutionary sites, although only from the outside since they were closed by the time I got off work. I'm definitely going to make another trip back to see everything.
 
On the last day, we made the hour drive up to Seabrook to get a little fishing in. There was a two hour Mackerel trip we did for only $20. The fishing turned out to be slow, but we each caught our first ever mackerel. We ended the trip eating lobster by the dock, and planning a trip back.

The head stone of Captain Malcom. He was hung for smuggling booze into Boston so they wouldn't have to pay taxes on it. Later, the Red Coats used it for target practice during the revolutionary war.

The Old North Church steeple where Paul Revere lit a lantern letting people now the British were marching toward Lexington and Concord.

Spot where the Latin School once was.

Old South Meeting House.

No one knew our name, but it was still a great time.
 
This block party was so fun, and provided unbelievable Italian food. Chelsea went with ravioli's while I went with a stuffed artichoke,

Our haul for the two hour trip. No one was skunked.

A great sunset was a fitting end to the day.
