Love Boston!! Another place I will need to come back to!!
Our first full day in Boston, we really just walked around. Everything was reasonably close to where we were staying.
We took a stroll through the Boston Public Garden and Boston Common to get to Faneuil Hall Marketplace. wondered around the shops had a couple of beers and then headed back home to get ready for dinner.
We decided on the Union Oyster House which is the oldest restaurant in Boston and also famous for seafood (obviously). We all decided to get the lobsters, and since I can now compare, I think this one was better than the one I had in Orgunquit.
Next day, Cas still wasn't sleeping well and it was a miserable day raining and cold, so we decided to do a trolley tour around Boston. We saw the site of the famous Boston Tea Party, Fenway Park, Harvard and few other places that I am currently having trouble remembering. That night we had a quiet one in with a bottle of wine and cheese and crackers for dinner as we were NYC bound the next day.
We had to check out of our apartment at 11 and since we had some time to spare, we decided to head back to Cheers for a sneaky beer before heading to the airport. Once we got to the airport, we discovered our plane had been delayed for an hour, so we ate lunch and played cards while we waited. Our plane was then delayed another hour (bad weather and traffic problems at JFK), so we continued to play cards and drink wine until it was time to board. Anyway we boarded about 4.30 and then after 10 minutes, we were advised our flight had been cancelled and so it was off the plane and into a line to get on a re-direct flight. We were luckily to get one into La Guardia at 5.30. So after a while (as re-direct flight was also delayed) we touched down in NY around 7.30. We finally arrived at our apartment around 8.30 - 9pm (long day), but we were now in New York so we got ourselves sorted and headed out for dinner at about 10pm. Had a delicious Italian meal just up the road and finished it off with a couple of beers at our local pub the Red Lion.
More to come on NYC...
