The superhero won us a harbor cruise at a United Way auction sponsered by one of the Boston architectural firms we work with and yesterday’s perfect 80F weather turned out to be the most perfect day. The USS Constitution(known as Old Ironsides) was out for a tug supported cruise round the harbor to commenorate the War of 1812 and we got to see her sail right by our ship. You can read more about her here… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Constitution
We were also sitting in the water with quite a number of boats of all kinds who had come to see her brief cruise and gun salute. The photos I took also include Castle Island – filled with onlookers and some other good size sailboats that were out in the water with us, as well as some views of the Boston skyline and the Rose Kennedy Greenway gardens and scupltures. Hope you enjoy this brief glimpse into history on a summer Monday.
