Bikes in Boston

We had a great time in Boston. We pulled into Constitution Marina, just across from the North End, and stayed two nights. It was a short walk to the Freedom Trail, Paul Revere's house, Old North Church, lots of Italian restaurants and food stores. Peg and I wandered and Jeff had a great bike ride along the Charles River.

We met our friends, Linda and Rad, for dinner and delivery of a new davit for the dinghy and lovely universal pump-out fitting which had been sent to their house. As we waited outside Mike's Pastries for Rad to get a canoli for dessert, we watched a Harvard Crimson writer take over a balloon artist's spot and make a wonderful bicycle (much more impressive than the simple balloon flowers he had been making).

As we walked Rad and Linda to the T stop to go home, she stopped to throw the bicycle away and Peg protested and ended up with the creation (her roommates said she makes them all the time and they didn't want it!)

The next day, we visited the Constitution ("Old Ironsides"), Peg climbed to the top of the Bunker Hill Monument, we went to the amazing Farmer's Market, watched a bike race around City Hall, I visited the Public Garden to see the "Make Way for Ducklings" statue. We returned to our now favorite Italian restaurant and Jennifer the waitress for dinner. Then the next morning we were off to head South down Cape Cod Bay and the canal at the end. Today we are off to New Brunswick and the Whaling Museum! Sally
