|THE Old North Church|
Now that I've been home for a couple of weeks, I've had a chance to process and analyze this love-affair, and I think I have determined its source. Boston perfectly embodies the convenience of a metropolitan city while maintaining small town charm. In addition, its prominent role in American history adds to the appeal.
My husband was able to join me for the last few days of the visit, and we enjoyed exploring the Harbor, the green spaces, and the North End. His bucket list items, however, were to see Paul Revere's House and the Old North Church.
I guess he was really excited to see the Old North Church because anytime we passed a historical building (and there were many), Geoff would ask if that was the Old North Church. It became comical after a while and by the end of the trip, we counted six of them all over Boston.
I thought it might be fun to share these rare finds with you.
