Name: Op Sail Boston 2012
Length of stay: 2 hour
Op Sail Boston is a collection of tall ships that come in and offer tours of ships. It is a great thing to watch. The girls got to watch 4 Ships sail in. They took their first “T” ride and went to Boston Harbor to watch the ships come in. We watched the ships fire on the island and then the island return fire in mock battle for the 200 year marking of the war of 1812.

Name:Old North Church
Location: Boston, Massachusetts
Length of stay: 30 minutes
The Old North church is made famous by the One if by land and Two if by sea. We walked on part of the Freedom Trail to get to the Old North Church. The girls were questioned about it. Rose remembered but Amelia did not. We got to go inside and hear part of the history of the church and some of the neat things about it. Old North Church is still a functioning church today. THis is a stop along the Freedom Trail
We walked part of the Freedom Trial to get to Old North Church.
We stopped at one of the many old cemeteries in the area.
From the outside you can see the mention of lantern’s that started Paul Revere’s ride.
The girls inside the church.
They have one of the oldest working clocks in America. It was build by two men that were not clock makers and it still works today.
You can also see an example of One of the first Flags.
