Boston Getaway

Bob and I figured it might be nice to have a quick getaway and we picked Boston because it was easy to get to by train (3-hours from Penn Station in NY) and also who doesn't want to get some nice fresh seafood! Here's a look of the New York skyline on our way out to Boston from the train:
We stopped at the Back Bay train (T) stop and walked to our hotel.  It was such a nice day - such good vibes in Boston!
And how about these City Toilets!?  I wasn't quite brave enough though to pay and check it out. Maybe next time :-)
We found our little hotel and thankfully we didn't have any heavy luggage:
Early dinner of risotto with shrimp and scallops. YUM!
Later that night, we went to catch a baseball game. Go Sox! We are so jumping on the bandwagon here if we buy a summer home in Boston!
The next day, it was off to this "island" sort of called Hull in a commuter ferry. The ferry ride takes about 25 minutes and it even makes a stop at the airport:
What an awesome backdrop of downtown Boston from the ferry:
Check out these jelly fish by the dock. YIKES!

There were other cool things to see in Boston, like this wall of old sewing machines in one of the stores at Back Bay:
And pretty gardens at Boston Common:
And can't forget the yummy Chinese food in Chinatown.  I'm not sure if Bobby was actually comfortable eating noodles for breakfast, but at least he tried :-)
What a nice break!  Thanks to my in-laws for watching the boys. Hopefully we'll be able to get a little place here in the near future.  It would be so great for the boys too as there's so much for them to learn and do here. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
