A Walking Photo Tour of Boston

Since I am certainly no expert on the city of Boston having only been there this one time, I am not going to try and fill your head with history lessons that we all learned back in the grade 3.
I do however have a digital ton of photos and have decided to share a select few with you.

George Washington



Cheers !


Follow the red brick trail for more history than you can take in.

Kings Chapel Graveyard
(you know we had to go to the cemeteries)

Graveyard from inside Kings Chapel



Benjamin Franklin

Cranary Burial Ground


Faneuil Hall Market
Oldest Restaurant in America






I hope you enjoyed these.
I'll be back soon with a wrap up and then on to something to get your heart racing.

Business has been very good since our return which is making this whole process a little more difficult to accomplish. In the off chance that I get to sit down for a few minutes, I find that my eyes come to a gentle close and my head sways to one side or the other.

Fantastic reminders of some of the things we saw five years ago. I love Boston (K's more a NY kind of guy) and I have very fond memories of it. I hope you have some wonderful ones too!

We stayed with the historic part of Boston thus didn't get the full experience. I liked everything I saw but even so, I'd have to say that I'm with K on his love for New York. Can a person love more than one city?

Boston is my favourite city (next to Halifax of course!). I haven't been to too many but I am sure it will stay at the top. Stew, this is a great account of this city....so many familiar places I see. Cheers!!

Along with New Orleans, I find it the least American city in your country - does that make sense? I don't mean it positively or negatively, just as a statement of fact. I enjoyed my few business visits there. Lovely photos but I have to give special credit to the aliums in the gardens - gorgeous!

I must admit, everyone we met was very friendly.
That's a refreshing change from our native Detroit area.

Stew Adams said...

I like that one too. I loved the relationship of row if alums with the row of trees and then buildings in the distance.
Yes, your comment makes perfect sense. I do love New Orleans.

I would love to visit Boston someday. It has an English feel to it and I love England.

Stew Adams said...

It does seem like a different world than the rest of the US. Complete with their own dialect.

I'm sure you know more about the city than I do. And I know Canadian schools are better than where I went for my primary lessons
