Fall colors in the city.
More shots from Boston.
This big mural was near our hotel. It was beautiful to see it up close.
We finally stood in line at Boston’s famous Mike’s Pastry Shop for dessert one night. This was not a long line. We only waited about 15 minutes. Besides all of the cannoli flavors they had listed across the wall, there were cases of other desserts as well. Brett got several different cannolis and I got a slice of Nutella cheesecake. It was awesome!
Heading out for a long walk in Boston.

Lots of things to see in Boston. We walked all over that city and that was just the first day. After our half day whale watching trip we walked over to Boston Common Park and walked around that area before heading to the hotel to rest up for dinner.
Our first night we had dinner at the North End. We didn’t make it into the famous Mike’s Pastry shop until the 2nd night. The first night the line was several blocks down the street. Instead we headed over to Quincy’s market before heading back to our hotel for the night.
Built in 1936, this historic lighthouse boat was renovated and was up for sale earlier this year for only $5M. We didn’t hear if it sold.
Views from the northern end of the harbor include the USS Constitution ship build in 1797. It’s docked at the former Charlestown Navy Yard and you can tour it but we never made it over there (gotta save something for the next trip). It’s exactly what I pictured would be sitting in the harbor here.
