Now this was a very interesting day in Boston. Checking this out to see and experience the birth of a nation is well worth the traffic jams. Such a beautiful city, and we took advantage of glorious weather and did the Boston Heritage Trail.
This walk takes most of the day and takes you from the centre of Boston through all the historic landmarks, burial sites, 500 year old buildings and new adaptions of areas redesigned for the modern millenia.
I have alwasy had an interest in the revolutionary war and civikwars in the US and for me this was a fantatsic moment to put real places into perspective with the stuff I had learned over the years.
For Sue, Bec and Tom I think ot represented differnt meanings but to all of us it was a trmemndous experience.
We cosed out our day with a visit to the famous "Cheers" bar as seen in the Ted Dansen TV comedies of the 80's and 90's. This turned out to be a great time for all, especialy mwah, as I even got to have a spell behind the bar with our great barman host Jake. Check out the photos in the boston album and you'll see it all for real.
