The day broke bright and sunny, with a little coolness and dryness in the air. Beautiful! A good day for a tour of the city.
We had booked one of the tour bus groups to do a day-long tour of the city. Our guide/driver, Rob showed up a few minutes early, and we boarded the bus. He explained that he had a small group today, and that it would be good because it would be more personal. Rob was a character!
Interestingly, we got into a conversation about cars and motorcycles on the ride into town. Turns out that he has a Series 3 BMW car that he races. He mentioned that he had been to Greensboro and had a track day at a track north of Greensboro. VIR! We talked about the track; he really likes it and wants to go back.
One "special" place he took us was Fenway Park, where the Red Sox play ball. We actually went into a bar that is housed at the green wall, at left field. From inside the bar, you could see inside the park to home plate. I'll post a pic of me and Big Sis.
We did all of the usual touristy things; I liked the Old North Church best. It's hard to imagine there being so many buildings 200+ years old. This is an old, historic place.
Rob returned us to our home away from home about 4:30pm, safe and sound. It was another good day on the road.
Tomorrow--Travel to Bar Harbor.
