I walked to the flour bakery while Linda went on a tour of the course.

Very popular bakery - they were out of sticky buns. :(

But I got donuts.

T-rex attacks the ducks.

We went on a tour in an amphibious vehicle called a Duck.

An interesting control panel.

I went for a walk around town. This is Faneuil Hall.

Flat Fish grow here.

7-11 in the financial district, complete with gold lettering.

Durgin Park is rightly famous for serving traditional food at a good price.

We are in Ben and Jerry's country ... but more on that later.

Linda finished in almost record time, but it took forever to find her among the crowds. Congratulations, Linda!

We went to Durgin Park to celebrate - with Boston baked beans.

And more Boston Cream Pie!

Street Performers outside Fanueil Hall.

More celebration.

Went to visit Harvard ... in our fair city.

Still celebrating, with ice cream.

Next day - took a tour of Fenway Park.

We got to go down on the field.

At Atlantic Seafood.

Went up to the top of the John Hancock Tower.

Next day, rented a car and drove through New Hampshire to Vermont.

Visited Ben and Jerries in the rain between tour busses.

They have a cool flavor graveyard where they commemorate fallen flavors.

Stopped by a maple farm on the way back.

They were definitely doing it the modern way.

They also had a cool informational video.
