We met my childhood friend Abby at 9:30 and drove into the city. We found a conveniently located parking garage near Quincy Market and then went into the Market to grab something to eat for breakfast. Quincy Market is a fabulous spot and would be worth going back to explore sometime but we didn't have a lot of extra time for shopping now. We walked …

We drove down the street where the Marathon bombing took place, and at the naval dockyard museum, we observed a minute's silence to commentate the 12th anniversary of 9/11. Two of the planes involved took off from Boston and 200 local lives were lost.

Lovely warm mild day, sun in the sky. Leisurely breakfast and back to pack. With time differences we watched the men's final of the French open. Just as they finished it was time to catch the shuttle to the black falcon cruise terminal. Lots and lots of people but a very slick operation.

The room was clean and updated. There was no complimentary breakfast though which is a drawback with a large family. The location is a bit tricky we missed it the first time and had to make quite a traverse on the freeways to get back. Carrabba's on the property was also great.
