Boston: Part II

After a co-worker told me about the Boston Duck Tours, a bus that takes you all around the city and into the water, we decided to take the tour our first day together so that we could get a nice overview of the city. That morning we woke up to some pretty cold weather (at least for us Floridians!) The temperature had dropped into the 40’s and 50’s and it was drizzling. Not the best day to take a duck tour but despite the weather conditions, we still had a fun time. The tour guide was really great and gave us all sorts of fun historical info and riding a bus into the water was pretty cool! Because of the weather, everyone closed the windows on the bus, so I wasn’t able to get too many pictures. I managed to take one of the Massachusetts State House (with real gold on top!) and one of another bus in the water. We were on a yellow duck, which I found really fitting 🙂

We found a Farmer’s Market right outside of Trinity Church and one of the stands, White Lion Baking Company, had gluten free goodies…so I bought a cupcake.

The guacamole was so yummy! We found a mirrored building on the walk home and took a selfie or a couple-ie? 🙂Boston-Massachusetts-Blog-Post-30

  1. The Duck Tour was an excellent way to start our trip in Boston. Getting to see Boston from both land and sea was nice. I confess I was a little nervous when we drove right into the Bay! Wasn’t sure the truck could really float. Glad I was wrong! The inside of Trinity Church was also a unique ‘oasis’ experience. It was quite a difference from the hustle and traffic of downtown Boston.

  2. I want to take the Duck Tour! Looks like a fun experience!! You guys always find lots of things to do when you visit a new place…looks like you were really enjoying Boston, but then again, how can one NOT enjoy Boston? It’s one of my favorite cities!!
