Day 2- Sunday

 This morning we woke up to the sounds of birds chirping as the sunlight streamed in through our windows. We got ready for the day at a lazy pace since we had only got 6 hrs of sleep. Once we were ready for the day, there was no stopping us. We first grabbed our touring map of Concord and hit the pavement with our jogging shoes.... except we walked :). We took pictures of the historic houses we saw on the way and other things. I have put a few of them up with descriptions below:
<= A Trinitarian Meeting house

<= showing the rest of the meeting house
 <= Where we stayed :)
A historic House

Plaque marking the house of Samuel Prescott who lead the Minutemen on the Lexington green

Home of Ralph Waldo Emerson 
Home to Nathaniel Hawthorne (also one of Louisa May Alcott's childhood homes)

Me at Orchard House, the house where Louise May Alcott grew up

 We got breakfast at the Inn's restaurant. I had Italian coffee with a bagel and cream cheese. Our Personal Driver, Mike, picked us up and took us into downtown Boston (with a  little bit of a detour to see the Back Bay district). We checked our bags into a hotel for the day and headed off to our first meeting. We had meetings all day which meant more coffee for me :)

After our last meeting we walked down to the wharf and saw the Boston Tea Party Museum

We then checked out our bags and walked half a mile with our luggage to the Public Transit station. After numerous falling attempts we managed to get our tickets and enter through the ominous looking doors. Once we got inside we realized we were on the wrong side of the Station. Fortunately we were able to find how you got across without too much trouble. We got onto the tram, after a wait, and headed for Wonderland (our getting-off point). Arriving in Wonderland, we called our Hotel to have them pick us up only to find out we were on the wrong side of the Station.... again. This time it was a bit more of a challenge to get to the other side, but after about a quarter mile of walking we arrived at the pick up point... only to be faced with another long wait.

The hotel shuttle was certainly a site for sore eyes and we were very happy to make it to the Hotel...

We are now winding down and considering a trip to the hot tub....

Christ is LORD,
