With a late flight out of Boston, I had all day to kick around town and see some sights. I decided to head back into the city and take a duck boat tour – seemed like a good way to get around to the best locations without having to do much walking or driving. There were departures every 30 minutes, but the lines were HUGE.
I quickly abandoned the duck boat plan and headed up to the Prudential Center observation deck on the 50th floor to take a look around. Luckily the weather broke for a bit and I got some nice shots.
Next I headed down to the waterfront. With no real plans, I was just winging it and doing what looked interesting. When I got there a harbor cruise caught my attention and at 16 bucks was one of the most reasonable deals around. At any rate, it was another chance to kick back and take in the views while someone else did the driving. We saw several historical sites and the boat captain gave excellent details about it all. I really enjoyed his narrative.
With time running out before I needed to head to the airport, I decided to wander around the old section of the waterfront area and see what I could find. I was able to spend some time in a very old cemetery and look around inside the Old North Church. It was an amazing feeling to stand in places with such depth of history and I wish I had more time to explore.
Thank you Boston. I truly enjoyed my trip and hope to come back some day.
