On our way out of New England, we spent a day exploring Boston. We've been to Boston together twice. The first time we went to Boston was on our Baseball Vacation Marathon in 2000 (11 Ball Parks, 9 hot dog stands, and 7 amusement parks in 13 days - Whew!) On that trip, we had little time to do anything in Boston other than watch the Red Soxs play. That was also during the Big Dig and Boston traffic was a nightmare for these two Texans. We drove over 5,000 miles that trip and camped out in our 15 passenger van.
Our second trip to Boston in 2004 was almost as rushed. We had been to a video conference in NYC to prepare for the Walk Through video series and decided to detour through Boston on our way home. Remembering the traffic from a few years before, we decided to stay in a hotel outside of town and rode the train, then the subway in to town. That trip we walked the Freedom Trail and explored the city a little. Oh, and we also visited Fenway Park.
We spent two weeks in Maine and have loved every minute of it! We did not take the time to update the blog as we explored, so this will be a long post. We've broken it down into several sections, in no particular order. If you don't have time to read it all, please enjoy the pictures.
