Boston...

Our Mooring in Boston was the most amazing spot - Downtown Boston.
We were beside this "Pirate Ship".

We had "chauffeur" driven rides ashore from 9am to 9pm at the click of the radio, 
taken directly to Boston Harbor Hotel.  Three nights a week they held "Barge Bands", 
Soul, Rat Pack and Jazz - it was wonderful sipping wine, eating tapas, 
overlooking the water to the band…


We were very excited to be going to Boston.
We had dear friends from NZ who were coming to Boston for a conference 
and added on a few days to have with us on Our Rose…


We all went on the Freedom Trail - a walk in History, covering 16 official sites, including the signing of American Independence & Benjamin Franklin.



These dog tags represent a fallen member of the US Military in the Iraq/Afghanistan War
We also went on a wonderful "Little Italy" gourmet tour of North End.
Enjoying wonderful tastings and discovering local places to shop and eat...


We booked to go on a day trip to Cape Cod.
We saw the President Kennedy Memorial


Gardens at President Kennedy Memorial
The tour also included a trip on the water to view the Kennedy Compound...

See You Juliet and David - who knows when we will see you next?..


We were really thrilled Teresa & Brett (Seismic Wave) decided to fly up and join us on Our Rose 
for the weekend before we left.

Also,  Belinda & Ken (Free Spirit) arrived…


We all visited Harvard Univeristy…





Walked Boston Common, this guy below was very colourful!..



These people with the signs merely wanted people to smile… "awesome"




We obviously had to visit this place…


The weekend consisted of good food, lots of wine and good friends!

Unfortunately Belinda was taking the photo, so she is missing in it!
