A Day in Boston

Last weekend I met up with my friend Tara in Boston for a day filed with sightseeing.  We visited the New England Aquarium, walked the entire Freedom Trail, and climbed the Bunker Hill Monument.  Here are some of the photos I took that day.

Our first stop was the New England Aquarium, where we were greeted by fur seals.

The southern rockhopper penguins were good swimmers.

The African penguins were very photogenic.

Looking at the tropical fish in the tanks made me think of Finding Nemo.

While they had large turtles, I was quite fond of this little guy.

Walking the streets of Boston, you'll see a lot of Betsy Ross flags.
