The Freedom Trail

While in Boston, we spent a balmy, 40 degree day walking the Freedom Trail. Its a red brick line (see below) that leads you through many of Boston's historical sites. 

The state house, located at Boston Common. 

Roasted nuts to sustain us as we walked. 

I like this juxtaposition. The old state house tucked away in the middle of everything, also the site of the Boston Massacre.

Lots of cobblestone roads. This particular one was outside of Paul Revere's house. I only tripped once the entire day.

A statue at Old North Church

The Bunker Hill bridge. 

Bay State. You can see the red "trail" we followed in the left hand corner. 

Aboard the USS Constitution, Old Ironsides. We caught the last tour before it closed.

"Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes."
