Hello, Boston! | Sunshine and Freedom

Our last full day in Boston woke us up with an abnormal “warmth.” I place warmth in quotations because warm weather to our Bostonian friends is 50F and above, whereas for Cestine and I, coming from the Bay we consider the 50’s to be on the colder end of our experience.

Regardless of the abnormality of a sunny winter day in Boston may be, Camille and Caty took advantage of the bright and less-layers-needed day by taking us around the river’s shores.

We began the day with lunch at Pier 6 Waterfront, a restaurant with a magnificent view of the city skyline and a menu to complement the sight’s freshness.

We then indulged into Boston’s blue hues to reach downtown for more exploration.

Downtown greeted us with more sites to see. Luckily for us, the day’s natural light enlivened the tourist experience even more.

Boston is filled with remnants of US’ history and strolling around North End is like bringing history books to life.

Known for its humongous cannolis, our first stop in North End was Mike’s Pastry. Cestine and I didn’t want to miss this cannoli of an opportunity considering it was a jam-packed bakery with a line out the door. Was it worth it? Yes, according to my sweet tooth.

In the nooks and crannies of this busy neighborhood is Paul Revere’s house. You know, the American Revolution patriot from the poem Listen my children and you shall hear, Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere

Along Mr. Revere’s sidewalk is the emblem of the Freedom Trail. The Freedom Trail is a pathway that links several of Boston’s historical sites to one another.

We continued walking around Boston and it continued to impress as the night came.

See the Oyster House sign? It’s the sign to one of the US’ oldest restaurants.

The illuminated building in the center is the Old State House, another marker on the freedom trail.

Thank you Boston for the wonderful morning and night. Maybe we’ll meet again?
