Boston Vacation

K, Eric & I met our friends Kent, Kathy, Marissa and Julia in Boston on Saturday for three days of vacation.  We played tourist.

Sunday we toured the USS Constitution, and the Freedom trail including the Old North Church, Paul Revere’s house, ending up at Faneuil Hall. Monday we visited Harvard’s Museum of Natural History, the New England Aquarium and watched the IMAX movie Under The Sea 3D.  We hiked to see the site of the Boston Tea Party, but it burned down two years ago. Tuesday we visited the Mapparium at the Mary Baker Eddy Library and the Museum of Science.
