Boston 2016, Day Six

Finally, the end of the never-ending trip, I know.

Tuesday, April 19 was our last full day in Boston. We started off with another T. Anthony’s breakfast (hadn’t had their French toast yet; just as good as I remember from college) and then got to the New England Aquarium as they opened. I hadn’t been since sophomore year in college and wanted to revisit it, and Brandon’s always up for seeing fishies.

Playing with sting rays, as we do.


Early morning at the Aquarium means cleaning penguin poop.

More jellies.

True story: I was looking for the lobster in this tank and finally found his tail. I said hi (as I do) … and he turned around. I’m telling you, lobster whisperer.

After the Aquarium, it was off to the North End to get to Neptune Oyster as they opened. We were still a little early so we split another cannoli from Mike’s, but decided to get in line about 25 minutes before Neptune opened. Good thing we did, too, as we barely got a spot inside.




After Neptune, we walked around a bit more before finding ourselves at Boston Sail Loft for the disappointing dill chowder.

Cool place otherwise, though.

From there, we headed back towards BU since I had money I needed to spend in the bookstore. Got another sticker for my car (which I still need to put on … but I need to get my car washed before that …), my new favorite lightweight zip-up hoodie, a sweatshirt for Brandon, and a tank and socks for me. Plus a card with the Boston University T stop map on it that we framed and put up in the house.

At this point, Brandon reminded me I still hadn’t taken him to the BU Pub yet, so we remedied that. The BU Pub is an on-campus bar solely for (of age) students, faculty, staff, and alumni. I didn’t have a drink, but B did and he wished they had a place like it on UND’s campus. I may not have drank as much in the Pub as a lot of my fellow Terriers, but I ate a lot of sandwiches there (they’ve got good sandwiches) and kicked a lot of ass at their trivia with my friend Brent.

We took some pictures at the BU Beach post-BU Pub …

On the whale. I spent a lot of time climbing this thing in college, too.

Brandon pretending the cars driving by on Storrow Drive are waves …

Gorgeous Boston in the springtime.

The best Boston dinner to hold me over until next time (Thai fried rice, a slice of cheese from T. Anthony’s, and some Angora), and back to the hotel to spend our last night in the city that will always hold a large chunk of my heart.
