This was my first trip to Boston. I loved it, of course! Make Way for Ducklings is one of our favorite stories, so with kiddos in tow we walked the same route the ducks waddled in the book to the Public Garden and took a swan boat ride around Duck Island. Checks were flying on my bucket list that day, checks I didn't even know about - almond macaroon from Mikes, anyone?
I'm looking forward to visiting this city again, only next time I hope to explore some of the neighborhoods a bit more. And of course most of a day just for the North End: lingering, strolling, sipping and eating.
