Right down the corner of where we were staying, there was a Buttery Bakery & Cafe where we grabbed coffee and breakfast a couple times. This avocado toast was delicious! We purchased all these ingredients (bread, avocado, lemon, and pumpkin seeds) while grocery shopping to make it at home.
The first full day in Boston, we hopped on a subway train to go to the city and do the Freedom Trail. Lordy. Thank goodness for the husband and being able to navigate through all the different train lines. Had it not been for him, I would have ended up in some other state.
The second full day in Boston, we hopped on the train and headed over to the Harvard University Campus. We read and heard that this campus was a must see in Boston. It really a beautiful campus. I loved the gates at each entrance of the campus.
Our next stop was the Boston Public Library. Guys. This place is beautiful. Makes me *sigh* thinking that we don't have beautiful libraries like this in Tampa. Such a shame.

Seriously, this room made me want to go back to school and study here.
While we waited for our tea reservation time, we walked over the Boston Gardens.
After some shopping for souvenirs, we went back to the Library to have our afternoon tea.
Boston was great. Loved the history and beautiful architecture of the old buildings. Would I want to live there? No. A little to busy for this girl. But a great place to visit for sure.
One more post coming about our New England trip. Stay tuned!
