We got up early (7:30) today and Katelyn and I went to the hotel restaurant for breakfast. We are staying in a nice Marriott Renaissance right near the harbor (thanks Jennifer and Paul for the Friends and Family rate). We had omelets and French toast, and brought eggs back to the room for Janet. After breakfast we took a cab to the harbor and headed out on a 3 hour whale watch cruise. It was foggy on the water with limited visibility and sadly we didn't see any whales. Still it was a nice boat ride, and the guides did their best to educate us about whales even if we weren't seeing them.
After we returned to the hotel, we went out sightseeing. We visited the U.S.S. Constitution (Old Ironsides), and a nearby WWII destroyer, the Cassin Young. From there we walked following the Freedom Trail to Paul Revere's house and toured that. We continued along the Freedom Trail and saw Faneuil Hall, the old State House, the site of the Boston Massacre, and the historic Haymarket.
Ultimately we walked all the way back to our hotel, and had a nice dinner at a restaurant nearby where we all shared some crab cakes as an appetizer. According to Katelyn's step counter, we walked over 12000 steps today!
