We started our morning run at the corner of Park and Tremont, right outside the T station in Boston Common. Each one of us signed in and then we waited until everyone arrived.

Then we headed toward the Granary Burying Ground where we saw some very old graves including the graves of three very famous Patriots from the American Revolution. He told us lots of interesting little facts about the graves and the crypts located in the graveyard.

We also went to the little alleyway where the very first Bostonians received their water for over 200 years known as the Great Spring. This is also the site of the very first Bostonian steel frame skyscraper built in 1893. We visited sites like Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, and the Old South Meeting House in downtown Boston.

The ferry ride back to Boston was a lovely relaxing ride. The sun had finally come out and a beautiful breeze was blowing.
It was also an excellent opportunity to get some beautiful shots of downtown Boston as we approached. Have I mentioned I love this city?!?
