Boston - Touring

Whee-doggies it was warm again today. We did a trolley tour which was good. Then we had lunch. Lobster rolls and Pellagrino Orange soda. Really good.

After lunch we did the inner harbor boat tour. This is Boston from the water. Today we learned that 65% of Boston is built on fill, and that there used to be 3 hills, now there is only one. The other two were leveled to make fill. Reminds me of Seattle and the Denny Regrade.

I did not get good pictures today, we're going back tomorrow to see Old Ironsides and more Boston. Maybe they'll be better.
