I spent the greater part of last week in Virginia with my sister! It was fun, but I also took no pictures. No one is surprised. (I guess technically I did take a few pictures, but they were mostly of UVA gardens so…)
When Nathanael picked me up from the airport upon my return to New England, we took advantage of the airport’s proximity to Boston and decided to walk the Freedom Trail!
My sweet husband had all these plans to take a picture at each stop so I could blog about it properly, but we kind of forgot most of the time. So here’s what we do have.
The trail begins in Boston Commons, the oldest park in America. Please note the man in period costume behind me (with whom I was too shy to take a picture).
Granary Burying Ground
That attractive man is sitting next to Paul Revere’s tombstone. Maybe he’s even sitting on Mr. Revere . . . ???
These pew rooms were amazing. They probably don’t encourage listening, but they’re preeeetttttyyyy.
Benjamin Franklin Statue
Paul Revere Statue/Old North Church
That church in the background is the one where Paul Revere instructed someone to hold up lanterns based on how the British army was traveling.
Bunker Hill Monument
This was the site of the first major battle of the Revolutionary War. Nowadays, it has the most amazing townhomes surrounding it.
You know, this thing was probably pretty cool. But we wouldn’t know, because we arrived five minutes after they closed. Oh well, we’ll just have to go back to Boston!
It was super awesome. And even I didn’t get pooped until the last couple of stops. We learned a bit about history and took in possibly the most picturesque town I’ve ever seen.
Plus, the best part is that Boston has a Prêt a Mànger.
