Spicyland takes Boston (Part 2)Posted: October 5, 2011
We put our walkin’ shoes on Thursday.
DT had a route that took us through Copley Square, the beautiful Boston Public Garden, the theater district, and Chinatown. We wound up at Quincy Market, a public market with a smorgasbord of shops and restaurants. Food – lots and lots of food.
We did a couple of laps up and down the hall trying to make the painstaking decision of what to have for lunch. There were just so many choices!
DT landed on fish and chips, I got a spinach and cheese calzone. We ate outside on the steps….great people watching!
After lunch, we grabbed a drink at Clarke’s at Faneuil Hall – Boston’s first public market.
Then we headed back toward home. Errm, hotel.
On our way, we found some great sights.
Then beautiful Beacon Street….
We also found….CHEERS! Where everybody knows your name!
To be honest, I thought this would be a rather cheesy, overpriced tourist trap – and yes, there were a lot of tourists (including us), but it turned out to be one of the most fun places (and most reasonably priced) we visited in Boston. Plus, we had a super nice bartender!
Making your way in the world today takes everything you got….
Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot….
Wouldn’t you like to get away?
Sometimes you wanna GO
Where everybody knows your name….
And they’re always glad you came….
You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same….
You wanna be where everybody knows your name….
We walked back to the hotel on Commercial Street….absolutely stunning.
Along the parkway, we came across a very sobering fire memorial. How does this not move you….
Arrrrrrgggggmmmm. Heartbreaking. Deep breath.
Okay, folks….almost there! This recount of a week-long trip is now turning into….well, a week long. Hmm. I’m just trying to relive it all over again!
Up next is the final installment – Part 3 of Boston/last day. Tear. 😦
