Boston, Ma Day 1

So here we are in Boston, the Hub of the Universe, as it is referred to by some.

After eating lunch on the boat, we took the tender into shore and went off exploring on our own.

Joy went shopping at Haymarket Square and walked around the North End where a long time ago she worked as a nurse for Boston VNA. It was here first real job. I was in my second year of grad school working on my MBA degree.

I went to Fanueil Hall and got a nice lecture by the National Park ranger.  Then over to the Old State House building where I bought a new American flag for High Spirits. Our last one got too ripped to use. It would catch on the dinghy davits.  Then we headed over to the Boston Harbor Hotel for dinner and the Blues Barge concert.

Every Thursday during the summer they have live music on this barge outside the hotel. Tonight was the last concert, Jeff Pitchell and his group.  Very good blues.  We stayed for two sets and then had to leave to catch the tender back to High Spirits before the tender stopped for the evening.  All in all, a very enjoyable day in Boston.
