Boston

080517 / 080617 - First up on our quick Boston weekend-o'-touristing: a trip to the Skywalk Observatory on Saturday evening to admire the views, then a walk over to Boston Common and a stroll along the Freedom Trail to Faneuil Hall, where we ended the night at a dive bar playing incredibly loud and thoroughly enjoyable 90s music on the jute box. Sunday morning began with stop at the first Dunkin' Donuts, then a visit to the Scituate Lighthouse. A drive back into the city took us to the Bunker Hill Monument, then we hopped back on the Freedom Trail and headed over to the USS Constitution before bidding the east coast farewell; I owe a special "Thank You" to whomever set our flight path over the city, and D for allowing me to take the window seat for some great views. Also of note: I left my trusty little Passport to Your National Parks book at home, so had to make do with some stamps on scratch paper and Scotch tape after the fact.
