Misty Boston

Now...Where was I? Ah, yes...on vacation before life stepped in and piled up. (Though I suppose that's better than stepping in a pile, though I digress...)

Our second full day in New England was partially spent in Boston. We took the train in, which the little guy and Minnie Mouse just loved:

Yes, I had to make sure Minnie could see...

As soon as we arrived in Boston, we could see what kind of day it was going to be. But although sugar does dissolve when it gets wet, we trusted that we would survive a little dampness and would still have a good time!

I really need to process these pictures...

Our plan was to walk the Freedom Trail, which picks up not far from the train station (maybe two blocks away). Following the trail will take you past many sites that were important during the Revolutionary War.

We are here...or here...where are we?

So, let's start our tour, shall we?

Old North Church and the Paul Revere statue
(Seriously...I have to process these pics!)

Paul Revere's house (I have a funny story about that...for a later post)

The marketplace at Fenuil Hall. Soggy, huh?

Old meets new

Um...I don't remember what this is! LOL! But it's cool, right?

The furthest point in our travels: Boston Commons

By this point, we were chilly and damp. Our feet were tired. So we returned to the station, headed back to Salem, and enjoyed a nice New England steamed dinner before hitting the hay. Sigh....


  1. Looks like you guys may have had your own personal rain cloud! It's great though that you still went out and snapped pics. It's always a bit of a bummer when you don't have blue skies but it seems you all made the most of it anyways. :)

  2. I think I just got an idea for my next entry in my watercolor journal: The Beltzes under their personal rain cloud! LOL!

    Ah well...I've always enjoyed lemonade, even when I have to make it myself! :)
