Shipping up to Boston

Posted by on September 6, 2012

Now that the rain has cleared, we have clear skies and cool temperatures. Unfortunately, there isn’t much wind, and Hurricane Leslie is sending large swells north to Maine. Rather than deal with that, we’ve decided to spend a few days in Boston. We figured there would be plenty to do in town to keep us busy through the weekend. We should have a reasonable day today, motoring through the Cape Cod Canal and up to the outer islands in Boston Harbor.

Originally we didn’t know if we’d have time to stop on the way north, and planned on stopping on our way back south. We’re going to try to meet up with our friend Ed and see what it’s like to sail around Boston Harbor. I’ve never been to Boston, but I’ve been using Rosetta Stone so I can communicate with the locals, “Pahk the cah in Hahvahd Yahd….”  Maybe Ed will translate for us.

    Boston is a great walking town! Dad and I have done parts of the Freedom Walk–dad more parts than me but still…So much history and beauty.

      We’ve walked, and walked, and walked. Originally I was confused by trying to follow roads. Now we just point uphill, downhill, towards the waterfront, etc. and wind our way through the crazy arrangement of streets. We don’t want to try to bike here, and I’d definitely never want to drive here.
