Mike booked us tickets for a Boston Duck Tour. Although the weather threatened us on our first day, we had clear skies and we were able to fully experience our duck tour. We rode on the “Haymarket Hannah” tour vehicle with our driver Admiral Amnesia.

The sites included Boston Common, the public garden, Trinity Church, Park Street Church, City Hall, the State House, a portion of Beacon Street, the Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge and Faneuil Hall. Near the end of the tour, the boat took float and took us down the Charles River and under the Longfellow Bridge for a view of the city from the water.

While all the sites zipped past us the driver told stories and jokes about the area. It was so quick that I’m sure we missed several “puny” jokes but there were enough that we grasped to make it enjoyable. It is typical of the Duck tour to make its riders say, “Quack Quack” on the ride. We were thankful that our duck driver was not much of a “Quacker.”

  1. That looks like so much fun! I wish I would have known about that tour when we visited Boston. Oh, well, next time. 🙂
