I have always been a lover of cities and my husband never stops planning hill stations. Luck was my side and we headed towards Boston this time. It was an unexpectedly perfect Saturday morning (sans the rains off course )where clouds and Sun played peek-a-boo. We started at 8 45 am and reached Boston roughly at around 1 15 pm. Needless to say,we did worship our appetite with subs and shakes on our way. The Bay area was welcoming
We hurriedly queued up for the cruise. The cruise was special as it was taking us on a date with one of the cetaceans,i.e whale. But even before we reached the mid-ocean to get a glimpse of the whales, the various views from the cruise were a cynosure for our eyes. As we departed the bay area and headed little ahead, the view of Boston city across the shore was simply splendid.
As we headed further, the ocean played with various shades of whites,green and blue from her palette and mesmerized us every moment.
And as we heard the announcement of our proximity towards the whales’ habitat, everyone on the deck started looking the celebrity of the day : the whales.
And finally it the eager wait to catch a glimpse of the water mammal was over. Crew members began throwing whale food to allure them. 3,2,1….and then came the sound of whale splash over. Aah! what a delightful glimpse.
Even more delightful was watching two of them taking a plunge
As we stood all excited watching the two, another splash diverted us the other side. By the time I look into the other side, it dived far displaying its V- shaped dorsal fin.
As we proceeded back towards the shore, another wonderful sight caught my eye.
It was time for a snack and we went down the deck food counter to grab a hot dog
Back in shore, we decided to walk down the streets of Boston, i.e., our desire to roam freely and surfing the city was about to begin. The colorful public transports moved all over the streets of the city that had its own charm.
And then, as we walked down the streets of Boston, we ate food that flattered our taste buds. An Elguapo burger sandwich and hand made fries from b.good followed by the pastries from Mike’s pastry.
After roaming around the streets of Boston, we drove back to the hotel and had sumptuous dinner at Romano’s Macaroni Grill. It was time to doze off and gear up for Day 2 at Massachusetts. After a warm shower we surely did get a good night’s sleep.
