OLD IRONSIDES

Now I really find this hard to believe, but it is true. The Constitution was commissioned and named by GEORGE WASHINGTON! This is one old ship!

We took a trolley trip around the city today and this was my favorite stop. The Constitution is a very beautiful ship, and still very strong, sturdy, and sea worthy, too. They take her out in the harbor 6 to 8 times a year. Of course it has been repaired several times, but when you think that this ship is almost 210 years old, it is in remarkable shape. It is still on active duty.

Just some colorful flags by the Constitution museum. Tomorrow we plan to venture further along the red line, all the way to the JFK Library, and on our way back we'll probably stop at Harvard Square.

Hi Kari's Mom! This is Linda's sister, Christa. I just moved from Boston July 1st and you have taken some beautiful pictures that make me homesick! I hope you are enjoying the city, I think everyone should visit it at least once if they can, soooo much history. Have fun!
