We are on a mooring in Boston Harbor and I keep thinking this may be the very spot where they threw in some tea. We arrived after a wonderful warmish overnight sail from Maine. We had the wind behind us for the first five hours then it moved onto a close reach and we had too slow down so that we could sail into the harbor with the pink rays of dawn. We love Boston, it's downtown core is a wonderful mixture of beautiful old brick buildings juxtaposed among towering glass skyscrapers.
I am endlessly fascinated by the details on the buildings,
The British are coming, the British are coming".
Yesterday we took one of those hop on, hop off tours which included a harbour cruise. Even though we could have cruised around the harbour on our own it was well worth the money. There is so much information that the guides know and share with you. The drivers and guides in Boston have been particularly entertaining, very ironic in their observations, one fellow was quick with the repartee, very enjoyable.
