|January 11, 2005
I had a business trip to Boston in January 2005, so, of course, I took a little time to visit some of the sites. The hotel was near the beginning of the Freedom Trail. I didn't get to walk the whole trail -- I took a shortcut -- but I got to see a lot. Below is Boston Commons.
|One of the first stops on the trail is this cemetery. In it you will find the graves of John Hancock (first); Paul Revere (second) and Mary Goose (third). Supposedly Mary Goose is who "Mother Goose" was based on.|
|One of the next stops was at the USS Constitution. Unfortunately, it was not open on the day I visited.|
|My last stop along the trail was at the monument for the Battle of Bunker Hill, which was actually fought at Breed's Hill.|
|My last visit for this trip was at the New England Aquarium. These guys (below) guard the entrance. The penguins (below them) were mighty cute.|
