On this very special day in America and in the wake of the marathon bombings I thought it would be nice to showcase some wonderful images from Boston. These pictures are from a previous year spent on the water in Boston Harbor. If you have never been to see the U.S.S Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, you should plan a trip. I am lucky enough to work in Boston everyday and be surrounded by this and lots of other history, along some strong, proud people.
Have a wonderful day with lots of great food, family and friends on this simple but special holiday!
They “turn” the Constitution a couple of times a year and sail it at least 1 nautical mile to keep its current status as a “commissioned warship.” It sails through the harbor each 4th of July with much fanfare and blows off its cannons at Castle Island Park (South Boston) which returns fire on the cannons located there.
