In Boston, there are some sites that you just have to visit, even though every other tourist in Boston is going there, too.
Quincy Market is right near the waterfront and Little Italy and it has all kinds of food shops and stores in one place.
We worked our way through the crowds to try and get some of this:
Unfortunately, the crowds inside were so thick we abandoned that idea and tried to work our way back outside.
We made it outside, almost, but suddenly Marti and Gail came to a screeching halt. Chocolate!
It was a narrow escape, they only bought one thing. Any longer and the chocolate would have melted from all the heat.
Outside, the crowds were thinner, but just a little.
Despite all the people, there still were some fun things to see, like this statue:
Put a dollar in the column in front of her and she would move and give you a fortune.
I didn’t risk a dollar to find out my fortune, seems I can’t get a good one from fortune cookies at a Chinese restaurant, and they are free. So why spend a buck to find out that disaster is waiting for me right around the corner?
We headed back to catch the train on foot and we came across this new idea, Sherry would approve. Nice and quiet. :c)
Bike rentals. You can rent a bike from these stands at various places around the city simply by swiping your credit card.
The lock will release the bike and you can ride it all over the city and return it to any bike rental stand you want, as long as you survive all the cars, taxis, busses and trucks.
We had a great time in Boston, but a day in the city has us longing for the wide open spaces and forests with minimal people. Thankfully, we have that RV to transport us there. :c)
And especially for Judy, THE END!
