Day 1 in Boston

Boston

Boston Common (or the bit right next to it - I always get the two mixed up!)

Same shot from a slightly different angle. Must learn how to rotate photos.

The lake with some nice tower blocks in the background.

Make Way for Ducklings!

You have no idea how HARD it is to get kids off this thing to take a photo!

Baby ducklings

And the woman wins!

Some sort of festival thingy on the common. It was boiling out there!

The old statehouse

At the top of the common

Downtown. I love the eclectic mix of buildings.

A bit of skyline

I need to look up what this is. I remember Anne showing it to me last time. It's a really important historic building… really…

Fanueil Hall

And a cafe in Quincey Market

Inside Faneuil Hall

At the back of Faneuil Hall

Another shot of the front

And another one. We were a bit of a captive audience as the bloke at the front was doing a talk…

A statue by the holocaust memorial

Close up of the statue

Holocaust Memorial

Looking up one of the glass columns of the Holocaust Memorial

The glass is etched with all the prisoner numbers from each concentration camp.

Skyline

Beacon Hill

More Beacon Hill

Yes, we did go in for a drink!

Tower block and church right by the hotel. I love the contrast of new and old architecture. It's weird but strangely compelling!
