Another day in Boston. Terrible storms over night and .75 inch of water fell. Many tornados have been reported in tornado

alley. 25 so far killed. One storm in New York before we left there resulted in the Empire State building being hit 4 times.
Unusual in one night but it is on average hit 10,000 times a year.

Better weather today and we set out for a long walk to "Cheers" for Brunch. Lovely in the park and we had a great

Lunch/Breakfast. Then on along the freedom trail. So much easier now the Boston big dig is complete. Watched the beautiful

people jogging along by the river.

Went to see The Constitution, an old iron sided ship, the oldest in the fleet.
There was a WWII destroyer in dry dock next door. A survivor of 2 kamakazi dive bombings.
We waited then for a ferry across the harbour again. Lovely trip in the sunshine.

A short walk and then back to the hotel by underground. We are both very tired.
