~*Who is Mother Goose*~

Our last day in Boston...we strolled through a few old cemeteries. Now there is some question as to if this is the true "Mother Goose", I googled it and it's quite interesting. Seems this grandmother liked to annoy the neighbors with rhymes and songs while telling them loudly to her grandchildren.

These graves were dated in the 1600's and the angels were quite interesting. Some were quite eerie while others were more angelic.

We took a short cruise through the Boston harbor and it turned out to be quite a chilly day.

These young men are from Yale and entertained everyone with some of their musical talents.

Tomorrow we leave for home and I am truly ready. I miss the country life and as I've said before "THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME."

Happy Trails....Ginger

Thanks for sharing your trip with us. Boston is just full of history, my husband loves history but not big cities, so I doubt we will ever get there. So glad you had a good time. ~ Pam
