Beantown, part II

Boston Common

The city was VERY excited that the Celtics won.

House of Representatives


Granary Burying Ground

The big pyramid shaped monument is where Ben Franklin's family is buried.

The Boston Tea Party was planned here.

First Public School , Ben Franklin was a drop out.

King's Chapel

Paul Revere House

Paul Revere had 16 children with two different wives.

She had thirty two cannons

and a crew of 450 that slept in two shifts.

They had their meals here too. There was one cook.

Dudes, there was more but I'm too tired to upload any more pictures.

When I drove up to Vermont by myself, I came back through Cambridge (though wasn't quite brave enough to try Boston) and I kept seeing signs for Paul Revere's trail. I'd follow it for a little while, but then I'd lose it in some neighborhood. SO frustrating!

Great pics! I always loved the swan boats in Boston. They reminded me of that book Make way For Ducklings. I'll refrain from telling you what the drivers in Boston reminded me of. Glad you had such a wonderful trip!

I grew up in Beantown. A great walking city, no?

Where are the pictures of the great pub crawl of Boston?
