And what did we do for fun?

With lots of history, an abundance of sensational restaurants, and a beautiful location, Boston is a great place for a vacation - in addition to visiting some of the highlights along the Freedom Trail, here are just a few of the things that we did yesterday.

Ate a delicious lunch at The Daily Catch, a tiny restaurant in Boston's historic North End neighborhood.  We enjoyed chatting with the chef, a quintessential Bostonian, about his calamari meatballs and his small kitchen, one that would rival those in Paris. 

Watched a procession of a saint through the streets in a scene reminiscent of Italy.

Met Benjamin Franklin's look-a-like in a subway station.

Went sailing on the Charles River
and passed a gondola.
