Thursday September 18th ~ Boston
Did you know that all of the above are nicknames for the city of Boston?
I got laid low with a bug and spent a big part of the past few days in bed, simply trying to get well. That put a serious damper in our sightseeing plans for Beantown. We still managed to get out and see a few of the items on the “must see” list including a 1/2 day inside the John F Kennedy Library, walked some, took a harbor cruise and a city tour.
I’m worn out and still not feeling 100%, so I’m just going to post a few pictures I took over a couple of days of sightseeing in Boston.

We take off tomorrow, driving up the coast a ways and then cutting west. I spent part of this afternoon looking at maps, guide books from AAA and researching on the Internet.
And then I put it all aside and we made an executive decision to just GO AND FIGURE IT OUT ALONG THE WAY.
Gratitude Moment: Today I am grateful for Amoxicillin. Enough said.
Sorry you were sick, but glad you are on the mend. We remember some fabulous meals at Durgan Park, where the Kennedy’s used to eat. And some crazy Taxi rides!
Definitely feeling better today. Thanks!
What a wonderful journey you have had, Joanne and Tim. I’m glad I have been able to follow your experiences throughout the world.Maybe one day I will follow your example of letting it go….
Best wishes from Helsinki, Finland
Hello Sirpa! It is a huge step, but what a journey we have been on. I hope you will take the plunge some day. Would love to see you again if your travels bring you to the Los Angeles area. Big hugs to you…
Hope you get well soon! Boston is one of my favorite American cities. The history and architecture are fascinating!
hope you feel better, soon. looks like you had pretty weather for the short time you were out and about. I love Boston, and hope you get back there sometime when you are feeling well enough to walk the Freedom Trail, explore Beacon Hill and all the wonderful places tucked away in that historic place.
