Boston #3

On Tuesday, we headed to Boston Commons, which is a large park, and the neighboring park which has beautiful flowers and these swan boats.  It is a little hard to tell, but there is a person at the rear of the boat behind the swan peddling the boat.  We declined to pay money to taking this little whirl around a small pond, but I think the swan boats are something Boston is known for.  We did ask a person on the bridge to take a picture of the four of us.

Then we went into Beacon Hill to find a place to eat.  We did like Rachael Ray tells people to do and went into a store to "ask a local" where to eat.  She directed us to the pub that was definitely one full of locals, not tourists.  I also took a picture of the row houses on Beacon Hill.  We saw a real estate advertisement where some of the homes were being advertised at $3.9 million. 
We then went back towards the park and found the Cheers bar.   Actually, the outside is the only thing that looked like Cheers, but is was definitely full of tourists.  Jackie and I found Norm to take our picture with.
That evening, we went to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park.  This is where the ponchos would have come in handy.  Instead we bought Red Sox ones for $10 each.  After a rain delay, we stayed until the seventh inning.  It was fun to be in such an old, historic stadium.
