Without our tour guide, we went back into Boston to do some essential shopping. We also wanted to see ‘Old Ironsides’, the oldest commissioned US warship, The Constitution, which dates back to the War of Independence.

This time we walked from Kenmore, all the way across the North End, and across the river to the dock, stopping at Paul Revere’s house on the way. We caught the ‘T’ home, but were worn out by the time we arrived back in Brighton.

There was live Irish music advertised at The Green Briar, so we offered Deborah and Henry dinner. Henry and Genevieve were not as keen on fiddles and whistles as we were, so left Deborah with us to enjoy it.
