Day two Boston, it is going to be a hot day today, we walked across the street and there is a
on the corner. $92 for 3 people, two days, 9AM to 6PM, with free tickets to the Harvard Museum of Natural History, (I always wanted to go to Harvard) the Museum would have been $26 and the tour also included a
for a tour of the Harbor. Hey, $92, there is no way Mollie is going to walk around Boston when its 97 degrees outside. The bus was great, we sat back, took the 2 1/2 hr narrated tour around Boston. We did the Duck splash later in the day when it was hotter, 45 minutes nice and cool in the Harbor. This was a match made in heaven, me, a breeze, shade, and nice soft padded seats. This tour was a hop on hop off, to me it was a hop on stay on. Mollie and Joyce loved the tour, we did the Mesume the next day, and toured a bit more on the bus. We went to Legal Seafood, right across the street from the Hotel, Like I said, it's 97 degrees, hotter than Hell, I'm thinking cold beer, and chilled seafood.
Ice cold Little neck clams, I ordered 1/2 a doz, I could have eaten 3 doz, what the heck am I thinking, God they were good and cold and fresh.
Joyce had the Stuffed shrimp..........when I took this picture, I had one hand on the camera, leaning over mollie almost falling off the chair, yes, its a bit blurry. I could have lied and said I took it on the train.
Mollie had a hot dog, I think its number 185 this week and counting
It was hot, did I tell you guy's how Dam hot it gets in Boston. after a few cold beers I was fine. I figured a nice Caesar salad.
Oh ya, Lobster roll, nice and cool, great idea
Legal Seafood really kicks the food out, our food was good and hot/cold and like I said, right across the street. We went back to the hotel for a evening of swimming, Mollie liked this idea and swam until she was tired.
The next day, our last full day in Boston. Breakfast is a pleasure, the Buffet is the same everyday, good by me, I like it just the way it is.
We got the bus at 9 AM, did a few stops, saw a few things and went over to the Harvard Museum. We all liked the museum, nice way to spend a Sunday morning. Mollie belongs to a local rock club, they had a big display of Rocks, she was in seventh heaven. The tall ships were in dock for the 4th of July, they were a great site to see.
We got back to the hotel took a walk over to Dirgun Park in Fenuil Hall Marketplace for dinner.
Joyce had the Clam chowder and a salad.
Being Irish, I had a few beers and the Corned Beef and Cabbage. nice and lean and tender, don't say anything about the ketchup
and the Boston Baked beans..I haven't had these in yrs.
The meal also came with corn bread. It only took the waitress a 1/2 hr before she told me I was a pain in the a-s, Not bad for a Irish joint. I asked her how the Indian pudding was, she said she would bring me a sample. I asked where the ice cream was, she said don't push your luck, I like this place. The Indian pudding was good, you guys are right its needs Ice Cream with ever bite. I was full after the meal, so the sample was fine.............Two good full days in Boston, Great town, nice people.
Tomorrow is our last day, our flight is at 6:30 PM so we have a full day to tour a bit more, and the gals want to shop..........see ya in the morning... Oh Ya, I almost forgot, on our way back to the hotel, Mollie had hot dog #186.
This is the reason why we could never eat at Louis Lunch, in New Haven, Ct. how could this kid not eat something without ketchup.
