We just returned from a mini vacay to Boston!
Well, it was actually a business trip for the Farmer/Advisor
(aka "my financial suggester as he likes to call it")
but a nice break for me.
Boston is a very impressive and friendly city
which is proud of its history and amazing "hawbah".
We were impressed with the Boston Common - a beautiful park
which was right outside our hotel window!
The city is "steeped" in tea and much more, History, that is!
We saw the Granary Burial Grounds where
Paul Revere, John Hancock, Sam Adams,
and many other history makers are buried!
A walking tour brought these events to life
and told the gruesome stories of the
witch hunts, Mary Dyer, the wars, the fight for freedom,
and the hardships of
the early settlers.
The food was a highlight as we
feasted on lobster rolls at James Hook & Co.,
clam "chowdah" at The Black Rose,
the famous pizza at Regina's,
Italian food in the North End, and of course
a drink where everybody knows your name - Cheers!

On the last day we visited the Quincy Market Place
where a giant Christmas Tree was lit that evening.
It was absolutely beautiful and the lights twinkled in time
to music - this really started to put me into the Christmas spirit.

At the market we shared a small Boston Cream Pie - so, so good!
All in all - it was worth the long drive to and from Boston!!!
Till next time ........... might attempt to make a Boston Cream Pie! Have you ever made one?
