Our Caribbean Cruise Vacation - Part 1 Boston

We left Olympia on October 26, 2015 taking the Capital Aeroporter  (pick up time was 4:40 am) to Sea-Tac Airport. Traffic wasn't very cooperative - ended up taking detours.  Got to the airport about 7:30 am.  We ate breakfast then went on to our gate.  They were already boarding the plane.  Flight left on time and we arrived in Boston at 5:30p Eastern Time.  Contacted our shuttle and it picked us up at 7 pm and took us to our hotel.

We spent the 27th just wandering around the area our hotel was located, getting our bearings and planning the rest of our stay.  

On the 28th, we caught the Beantown Trolley Tour at our hotel.  What a great tour!  It took us to the waterfront at Long Wharf where we caught our free harbor cruise.  Saw the Charlestown Navy Yard (home of the USS Constitution).  We also saw Fenway Park and a few other sites in Boston.

The 29th was another lazy day.  Our weather was wet most of the time.  On the 30th, we left our hotel and boarded our cruise ship.
