Cruise Day 1 – Boston MA – Irish Pub – Fenway Park – Red Sox and Rain
We arrived in Boston on Friday evening just in time for
supper and a ball game at Fenway Park. It was 70 degrees but it looked like
rain. We took the free Silver Line form the airport to our Hyatt downtown. So
far we had not spent much money. We were using some flight coupons that had to
be used by June. Then Lulu had some hotel points with Hyatt – so it was light
on the pocket so far. We decided to walk to the game – have dinner at an Irish
pub – then try our luck for game tickets.
It was 2 miles thru the Boston Commons to the game. Nothing
like a chicken pot pie at an Irish pub to get your blood stewing for a game. We
had no trouble getting a couple game tickets for $20 – the clouds were dark so
we were sure ot get under cover seats – even though they were in right field.
After 3 innings the heavens opened up and we had an hour rain delay. The Red
Sox were losing and we caught a cab back to see the end of the game in our
room. A nice warm swim ended the first day.
The next morning the air cleared and it was an easy walk to
the seaport – about two miles east. The ship was waiting and it was an easy on.
We carried our bags to our room 347 – and it was off to the buffets.
