Fall Vacation: Day 3 (Boston)...

Boston: Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market - WMV

Today was entirely devoted to historical sights around Boston -- and there are plenty. We saw all of the 'big' things: Old North Church, Boston Commons, historic graves & buildings. I haven't been to alot of really large cities -- but of the ones I have been to, Boston is the best 'smelling' city. Well, at least the parts that I saw today. I took a video of the outdoor foodmarket at Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, which was filled with especially tastey aromas. We had a delicious lunch there. (Click on the "Boston: Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market - WMV" link, above, to play the video). All in all, alot of walking -- even took a subway! But was another good day. On Wednesday, we go further up the coast, to Maine. A bit of a disappointment today, tho -- we got a call that the Whale Watching Cruise that we had booked for Wednesday, had to be cancelled, due to expected strong seas. So, I can't tell you exactly what to expect for Wednesday's posting -- you'll just have to check back to be surprised.

For today's posting, I could share the typical, expected 'historical' pics -- Statues of Paul Revere, famous buildings, etc... But, I figure you have likely already seen them in books, or on TV. So, instead, I'm gonna post some more 'unique' views of my day in Boston.

As always, click the pics to enlarge. Enjoy!

More tomorrow nite...
