Boston, Massachusetts - Part II

Pictures enlarge if you click on them. The lobster was great.

Even though I was born in the Southern United States and grew up eating great seafood from the Gulf of Mexico, I have to say I had the best seafood I have ever eaten in Boston. Here is a shot from the Legal Seafood Restaurant eating stuffed lobster. They had great, fresh seafood.

The Old North Church.

A shot of the steeple of the Old North Church. The church was built in 1723 and is the oldest church building in Boston. On April 18, 1775, Robert Newman hung two lanterns in its steeple to warn that the British troops were arriving by sea to send Paul Revere on his famous midnight ride to Lexington and Concord to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British are coming.

Catherine outside the Bull and Finch Pub where exterior shots for the TV show Cheers were filmed.

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library.

On our Boston trip we visited the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. A nice gentleman from Tennessee offered to take a picture of me and my wife so we would have one of the two of us together. A police officer drove up and thought the three of us were together. He offered to take a picture of the three of us and I said "Yes, thank you very much." That's how we ended up with the picture of us with a perfect stranger from Tennessee. Anyone know this man?

Catherine on the campus of Harvard University.

We also walked over the Harvard Bridge also known locally as the "MIT Bridge" that was near our inn to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and then caught the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) subway to Harvard Square. From Harvard Square we walked to the campus and went to several museums including the Harvard Museum of Natural History. This museum included a collection of glass models of plants, flowers, and fruit.
