Boston The Freedom Trail

We decided to walk the Freedom Trail on Saturday even though it was raining. It was a great idea and we didn't get that wet. The Freedom Trail is marked by a red brick line that runs 2 and 1/2 miles from Bunker Hill to Boston Public Gardens through most of Boston's historic sites. We had driven by most of the sites on the the Duck Tour so it interesting to take more time to walk through and take a longer look. We had great calzones in the Italian section on the North End. My favorite, of course, was Mrs. Mallard and her ducklings in the public gardens.
We bought fancy desserts at the Modern Bakery and took them home to eat while we played Bananagrams and taught Lisa and John how to play 500.
