Today’s post will be a short one because we got a late start, and didn’t get back to our hotel until late.
Breakfast - Flour Bakery
This morning, we drove into Cambridge to Flour bakery and got a breakfast of Boston cream pie, a lemon-ginger scone, and a blueberry muffin.
Lunch - Carmelina's
After breakfast, we drove to Alewife Station, parked, and rode the train into downtown Boston. We explored some of the city via bus/trolley, and ended up stopping in the North End on Hanover Street to seek out an authentic Italian lunch. We found a place called Carmelina’s, and enjoyed a lunch of a Risotto Caprese appetizer, Carbonara, Pollo Cardinale, and Rolatti di Pasta.
After lunch, we walked across the street to get dessert at the famed Mike’s Pastry. We got a lobster tail puff, a Boston cream puff, and a chocolate chip cannoli.
We spent the afternoon exploring some of Boston’s historical sites. We saw Paul Revere’s House, the Old North Church, the Bunker Hill Monument, the USS Constitution, and more. We toured the Old State House museum, and then caught the red-line subway back (via a handful of transfers) to Alewife to pick up our car and head to the hotel to change clothes.
Red Sox vs. Cardinals
Our next stop was our parking deck for Fenway Park to see the Red Sox play the St. Louis Cardinals. We explored a bit before the game, and enjoyed the game for the rest of the evening, returning to our hotel around midnight. The Sox didn’t play so well for the first 8 innings, but managed to score 3 in the bottom of the 9th and win the game on a walk-off double from Mookie Betts! It was an exciting game, and we were glad to wade through the heavy post-game traffic and return to our hotel for the evening.
That’s all for today! We’ll be in Boston again tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
