First Day in Boston #191

For our first full day in Boston we took a hop-on-hop-off bus around the city. As always, this is a great way to see lots in a new place. We got off at the USS Constitution where we visited the museum and learned a lot about "Old Ironsides" and the War of 1812. We also walked up to the Bunker Hill memorial, which is on Breed's Hill. We stopped for lunch at the harbour and went on a short cruise around the bay. We had a very entertainingly commentator from Donegal who told us lots of interesting things about Boston. Following this we went up towards Boston Common and stopped at the Granary Cemetery to see the graves of Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John is Hancock. We went for a jar in JJ Foleys and took the "T" back to the apartment. We walked, were on a bus, boat, and train today - very exhausting. Here a a few of the photos I took today...
