The Shoestring Catch

Boston Day I

We got into Boston around 2:00PM and drove around the city for awhile trying to find cheap parking.  After this failed we drove over to Fenway and found a $1/hour meter near the park.  My guess is that this meter will not be available on game day.  A one hour tour of the park only costs $12, so we decided to take one.  Andrew was giddy the entire time.  We got to see the press box, sit in the original seats in the grandstands, stand on top of the Green Monster, and check out the fairly new right field rooftop section.  I was happy we got to see the park before the game because I don’t plan on leaving my seat during the game.  At most parks I like to do a walk around during the game, but at Fenway I want to sit in my seat and absorb as much baseball goodness as possible.  After the tour we moved the car to a meter near city hall and walked some of the Freedom Trail.  We saw Paul Revere’s house, Cobb’s Hill Cemetery, Faneuil Hall, and taverns that date back to the 1700s on our walk.  I think we are going to try to see the USS Constitution tomorrow, and perhaps the Harpoon Brewery.  Whatever we do tomorrow, we are definitely taking the subway into town so that we don’t have to deal with parking the car.
