After we spent six days in Maine, we drove to Boston. I like to visit big cities. I used to think I wanted to live in one. So whenever I visit one, I am reminded why visiting them and living in small-town American is good for me.
Boston had been on my list of places to visit for awhile now. I still regret not visiting there when Katie lived there. It was a season of transition for Greg and I, having just moved to Murray and started new jobs. Then I was diagnosed with diabetes and later the same year managed to get time off work to go to Greece and Italy with my in-laws.
So Boston had to wait.
I finally made it.
And it was worth the wait.
If you ask my 4-year-old girl about our vacation, she’ll start by telling you we stayed on a houseboat in Boston. And it’s worth telling. The three nights we spent there were a fun part of the adventure.
It was a houseboat converted to be more a stand-still accommodation in the Charlestown’s Shipyard Quarters Marina. It was a three-bedroom, two-bathroom houseboat that had a living/dining/kitchen space and a balcony with some beautiful views of the Charles River and surrounding Boston.
The kids especially loved their bed nooks ..
Oh, and it was decorated with elephants. This was a favorite decoration …
I’ve been blogging about our vacation to the Northeast as I have time. You can read about our time in Maine and look at plenty of pictures. There are a couple more Boston posts to come, but there are pictures to tide you over until then.
