In love with Boston

After a very busy week at Quilts UK, feeling very guilty I left the Doughty crew to packdown, and flew off to spend two whole weeks in the US!! Me and hubby are doing a mini- tour of Boston, then down to Florida - Daytona, then Tampa, then back up to Boston to spend a couple of days in Plymouth and Provincetown.
So in the first couple of days, I think we have managed to see the whole of the city of Boston on foot, and man, do they hurt!
Boston is truly a beautiful city, we walked the Freedom Trail, which takes you all along historic points of the city - the Patriots' fight for independence against the English. The city's architecture is a wonderful mix if the old and the new, including some very nice clapboard houses up in the area of Charlestown. Yet another place to add to the long list of places we would like to live!


On our second day, we decided to hunt down a diner we had seen on Guy Fieri's TV show - Mike's City Diner, which took us to yet another part of the city, great place, I had the largest eggs benedict known to man, while Jus had his first corn beef hash which went down very well.


  

We then went for a walk around the Back Bay Area, again, beautiful red bricks adorning tree-lined streets and a very peaceful lagoon onto the Charles River.


Today we're in Daytona Beach, just planning to sit today, and that's about it! Oh, and maybe a trip to ihop!
