I’m sorry that my blogging has been so sporadic, but our internet connectivity has been hit or miss. So I’m doing the best I can. Our cabin steward just stopped me in the hall to let me know that he would be bringing in our veranda furniture for tonight because the weather is supposed to be “really, really bad.” Yikes, I guess I’ll be doing a triple dose of Bonine once again. Tonight is our last night so this is disappointing. Tomorrow morning we disembark at 8:30 in New York City and prepare to head back to Alabama.
We had a beautiful weather day in Boston yesterday, and our tour included a 4-hour walk on the Freedom Trail, followed by a wonderful lunch with my friend and broker, Jeff Swett, at the Union Oyster Bar. But more on that later. I can’t begin to remember all that was shared by our fantastic guide yesterday, but will add captions when I can.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the BIG DIG in Boston which started as a 3 million dollar project and finished at over 30 million. It took the freeway traffic through the heart of the city and routed it below ground in massive, vented tunnels. On the top is an extended median park called the Rose Kennedy Parkway (I think) which is lovely. Sorry, no pics. It has greatly reduced the traffic and pollution. According to our guide who is a native Bostonian, it was worth every penny.
I will post one more blog about today’s final outing at Newport, Rhode Island, along with a few interesting stories about the trip.
Thanks for joining us!
