Where I stayed
During our Boston trip I have found a love for the Red Sox - a Baseball team here and I have gotten a T-shirt and hat, Brown got a hat too and we scoured the market and food hall. Smells and tastes filled the air - the meat looks bigger and the fish more flavoursome. I found The Cheers Bar and a stall that sold merchandice one T-shirt read.. I've had a few... "I don't even know my name" (That's funny to Cheers fans!) We went on a boat ride next I'm going over to Brown for that part :)..
Thank you Mayzeebabe.
Before I get to the boat ride, I need to add a few prior observations. Like the longest ever 5 hour flight of my entire life. Having no inflight movies actually makes time tick backwards. No matter how cheap a future deal may be I think I am now a trans-atlantic snob and will insist on trimmings and extras that keep me from insanely checking the time about every seven minutes
We hit town without a cent to our name - and found a machine that kindly gave me $20. Tony hit Starbucks and I just gazed in wonder at the delicious and varied items on offer. MMMMmmmm - couldn't decide so onto a deli - MMMMMmmmm scrumptious stuff. Hey - where are the toilets?? I went in a few places that required tokens, purchases, subscriptions or a change of religion - as we made our way to the dock area - I was informed that Boston didn't have any public loos - once she'd realised what I was after - Oh a BATHROOM!
Well - I went up to the hot dog seller and he said "Can I help you?" And I whimpered I need the BARTHROOM - You need the BATHROOM? He echoed - Well you've asked the right person and showed me where to go - I love that hot dog man and Tony dutifully bought a hotdog by way of thanks.
So down to the docks because I wanted a CODZILLA ride - I heard it was fast wet and noisy and it looked fun - like a big speedboat with shark teeth. We got on and Tony sat in the wettest seats possible :-))) HEE Heeeeee HEEEEEEEE I'm all excited and off we go. Loud music and off we chug feeling like the big boys of the bay - everyone chatting about who is going to get the wettest. WHEEEEEEEE he goes fast and Yes Mayzeee is the first and only person somehow to get a bucket's worth of water in the face - It is here I start laughing my head off and it just gets worse from hereon. All I can remember is laughing and screaming and loving it.
And I got soaked and so did my phone which is now officially dead
When we got back to shore it started to rain torrentially and all of Boston were soon as soaking as we were - there is something cosmic about that, as when we boarded the boat it was 30 degree sunshine and we were sitting on a wall sipping fresh lemonade.
