More pics from Boston

on November 20, 2012

Here are some more pics from my time in Boston. It’s such a great town – easy to walk around, lots of history, lots of Kennedy-related places, lots of Irishness, beautiful parks and water, stunning architecture, Harvard & MIT, a relaxed vibe and friendly people. Yay for Boston, I say – I love it!

A beautiful day at the State House – the dome of this capitol building is golden as presidents (three, I think) have come from this state. Just trying to save you some money on a guided tour, folks.

Old City Hall, Boston.

Thinking frog at the Frog Pond in Boston Common. He’s watching over the ice skating rink, which has just opened up for the winter.

The fairly creepy Granary Burying Ground, with graves dating back to 1660. The late afternoon light and the cold mist made it pretty spooky.

Most of the gravestones had this image carved (or whatever the right word is) into the top of them. Eeeeeek!

And then some of the gravestones had something that looked a little more like an alien or a light bulb with a face…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here too.
