Barcelona Beauty - Part 4
Today we went to Boston for two reasons. One, to go to Windsor button to find buttons for the suit; two to visit some of the historical sites in Boston relating to my son's famous American paper.
After driving down and picking up the train to North Station, and a then a quick subway ride, our first stop was Windsor Button:
I found the buttons for the suit. They are a red dyed mother of pearl, with sort of a texture on the surface. They actually match very well in terms of color and texture and will not call attention to themselves, but harmonize nicely with the suit.
After that we went to the Boston Common and walked around a bit. I took this picture at the Frog Pond, which is currently an ice skating pond.
After eating lunch, we took the subway partway back to North Station and picked up the Freedom Trail at Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, where we picked up a snack and then continued walking. Once we got to the North End, we stopped at Paul Revere's House, the Paul Revere Monument and the Old North Church.
We also walked over to Bunker Hill, but did not have time to explore the monument and park because we needed to catch the train back to where our car was parked.
The children are exhausted from walking around Boston, which is good, maybe I'll finish the Flopsy Rabbit dress tonight.
Parting Shot: Squirrels! We ate lunch at the Boston Common and the children quickly found out the squirrels were tame enough to feed. In the first photo there are three squirrels on the tree near my daughter. In the second photo, this squirrel was so tame that he got right up on the bench and was nosing around my pack before my daughter decided to feed him.
