Ducks & Swans

Another fun trip!!!

IMG_3713Sunday, August 17, 53 of us boarded the Silver Fox motorcoach bound for a day in Boston.

The weather was perfect early in the day with sunshine and low humidity, with the clouds moving in later in the day, but no rain.

Our first stop of the day was the Boston Public Gardens where we rode the Swan Boats around the pond.

Afterward we had time to walk through the Public Gardens and some of us found the bench used in Robin William’s “Good Will Hunting” as well as the Make Way for Ducklings statues made famous by the book from James McClosky.

Back onto the motorcoach for a short ride to lunch at “Maggiano’s”, everyone’s favorite Italian restaurant. After our delicious lunch it was over to the Prudential Center to board our World War II era “Duck Boats” for a guided tour around the city of Boston before ending with a “splashdown” in the Charles River.

Our surprise stop of the day was a visit to the Navy Yard in Charlestown. Here we were able to board the U S S Constitution before she goes into dry-dock in 2015 for three years. Some of us opted to go into the visitors’ museum to explore and visit the gift shop.

The trip was enjoyed by all, and they are looking forward to the next adventure with And Away We Go Travel.
