OK now for Boston. I know that what you are all waiting for is the big tweet-up in Boston. However, I am going to keep you waiting a little longer for that. I have too many pictures for one entry and the tweet-up is so special that I am going to give it its own entry tomorrow. So this is the stuff that we did on the first and third days.
We arrived in Boston hungry so after we booked into our hotel we went to the California Pizza Kitchen just around the corner and had pizza and a grilled vegetable sandwich, both very yummy. We watched the Monday night football at the same time.
Now is that yummy or what???? Just what a travelling primate needed. You can see I am looking at the sandwich with interest but I bet you can guess which one I went for!
The next day we went out to explore Boston, it was a bit wet (our old friend Hurrican Isaac again I am told), so we didn't get as many pictures as we would have liked, but walking on Boston Common (beautiful) I did get to see the founding of Boston in 1730.
This is a lovely memorial to the event.
We went on a trolly tour around Boston on the third day, that was fun, it was so quick that I didn't really get to take many photos but it was really interesting because I saw what I want to see when I go back there again.
I also got into Starbucks when I was in Boston, I had two in one day, does that count as an addiction?
This one was on the beautiful Boston Harbour. Come to think of it that cup of coffee does look rather large for me!!
I met some new friends in Boston, one of them came home with me, Sebastian the lobster, but I found these ones quite friendly.
Well actually, come to think of it I look a little scared here, well wouldn't you, have you seen those claws?
Leroy had a great treat in Boston, he used to watch Cheers with my person years ago, so it was a great thrill for him to have a pint in Cheers. Obviously he wanted the occasion recorded!
He looks pretty much as though he has had a pint of beer doesn't he!!
Amongst the many things I wanted to do in America was to have a grilled cheese sandwich. I did, on the last day in Boston, boy it was bigggg!!!
Now who wouldn't want to eat that! It was yummy, we have toasted cheese in England it is not the same thing, both are nice but I definitely like grilled cheese!
So, one more entry, the big tweet-up in Boston. I promise to do that entry tomorrow. Bet you can't wait!!
