Day 3


We ate breakfast at our hotel. We marveled at the memory of our waitress who despite looking after the whole café solo, she somehow remembered all four orders from our table exactly as placed.

After breakfast we walked to our local stop for the hop on hop off bus near Fenway Park and boarded within a few minutes. It was mid 20s, not quite as hot as yesterday but humidity remained high and increased further as the day went but. The bus company run a 15 minute service. Impressive. We stayed on board for one stop shy of a full lap and alighted at a mall complex surrounding parkland with adjacent hotels and office towers.

We had a light lunch then purchased tickets to ride to the adjacent Prudential Tower lookout which is 50 stories above Boston. With 360 degree uninterrupted views and commentary explaining what we were looking at in each direction, we spent around 45 minutes taking a bunch of photos and taking it all in. We could see the airport and watched planes going in to land in one direction, and on the other side we could clearly see our hotel and Fenway Park nearby.

After returning to ground level and a coffee at Starbucks, we re-boarded the hop on hop off service for the last leg back to the stop near our hotel. On the way we called in at the Boston Redsox merchandise store on our way back to the hotel.

Late afternoon we had a quiet wine in the bar downstairs and later headed over the road to the Italian Restaurant. A pleasant end to a busy day.
