Full of WOWS
I'm back! We had a great time touring many areas of New England. All I can say is "WOW."
We arrived in Boston by noon. After we were settled into our room, Marilyn was in charge of getting us to MBTA station so we could get to Boston Commons as quickly as possible. There we took a guided tour with a character of the times to walk the "Freedom Trail." It is a 2.5 mile red-brick walking trail that leads you to 16 nationally significant historic sites. It is a unique collection of museums, churches, meeting houses, burying grounds, parks, a ship, and historic markers that tell the story of the American Revolution and beyond. It included the Old State House, Faneuil Hall, King's Chapel, Old South Meeting House and the site of the first public school in America.
We also had our first taste of local seafood at Legal Sea Foods as well as our first glimpse of the beautiful harbor. WOW!
And now a big WOW to Shelly!
My winner of the Red, White and Blue giveaway is Shelly over at "Lush." I just couldn't believe it this morning when random generator picked her number. Here's what she had said: "Seems to me everyone is ALL AMERICAN! WOW, I love the patriotism and tradition! I would serve up a batch of "GRATEFULNESS" for all who fought for our freedom and for the mother's/wives who sacraficed their son/daughter/husband/wife for the sake of all of us to even join in such a fun and wonderful contest! God Bless You for gearing up everyone's excitement to celebrate this great country!"
