Monday morning, my friend and I were going into the city to wait for the marathon finishers. Lynette and I walked to the T in Cambridge to go into Boston. The ultimate goal was to see her sister Suzanne and my friend Steve as they crossed the finish line in the Boston Marathon. We left the hotel at 9:15, giving us plenty of time to find the perfect spot to watch the race.
Special thanks go to the friendly woman on the T who was traveling with two young children. They were heading on a trip via bus. She took time to tell us that by getting off a stop prior to how the hotel staff had told us we could walk through Beacon Hill and see a lot more of the city. I love Boston so am very grateful for her help in our morning of sightseeing.
Lynette and I got off the T and heading up Charles Street. We stopped in a pastry shop and both got a muffin for breakfast. We continued walking.
