Gadding About In Boston

Group ready to leave for airport. (L to R: Gail, Sally, me, Ann, Peggy, Pat W.)
Five friends from Shelby, three of whom I've known since first grade, and I celebrated our 80th birthdays by taking A Rails and Sails trip through New England. While flying from Charlotte to Boston, American Airlines served us champagne when they learned we were celebrating turning 80. Dinner shortly after our arrival at the hotel was at Legal Seafood where we enjoyed different dishes of seafood.

My choice was steamed mussels.

The following day we had a bus tour of Boston in the morning stopping at The Old North Church of Paul Revere fame and the ship The Constitution.  We lunched at the popular Quincy Market.  We sailed around Boston Harbor and dined at Cheers Bar, "where everybody knew our name".
