A day trip to Boston in the pouring rain.

     On Sunday we decided to take the train into Boston which was great since I have never been on a commuter train and have NO commuter train ediquette (how do you spell ediquette????), which was quickly brought to my attention when I played my McDonalds porn clip on my phone much to the dismay of the man sitting behind me.  It was far too quiet and serious on the train in my opinion an opinion that was shared by Kerry I might add.

         We had decided to go to the New England Aquarium and since it was an overcast day that worked out perfectly. We ate at the aquarium cafeteria which just might be the most expensive fast food place  I have ever eaten at.

..... no I take that back the $ 8.50, 3 1/2 inch long hoagie I had at Dulles airport takes the cake.  After eating we went to the IMAX theater to see a 3-D movie about sharks. I haven't been to an IMAX in years and was slightly embarrassed at the fact that at one time I started to reach out to touch the fish that appeared to be right in front of me. You have to love the sexy 3-D glasses they give you also.

     We then went into to the New England Aquarium which was really cool. There were far too many children there tho so I spent the bulk of the day elbowing and kicking small children so I could get a better view. Just kidding only 1 but it wasn't my fault he started it. I also spent like an hour at the penguin enclosure staring at this balding penguin who I was sure was going to die until I found out he was molting which is normal for penguins in captivity, why you ask, because I'm a freak that's why.

3-D glasses!!!

     After the aquariam we decided we wanted to do some more Boston sightseeing, unfortunately it was late in the day and hop on-hop off buses were ending in 30 minutes so it was senseless to take a bus a tour. As we stood there and discussed what to do it started pouring down rain, so we decided to do what every sane person would do in the pouring rain take a Boston Harbor cruise which resulted in marvelous pictures, lol. After the cruise, which did take us by some amazing homes and the USS Constitution, we decided to eat at Legal Seafoods.  The restuarant was really cool and the food was great. The only bad thing about legal seafoods was our seats were right by the executioner's station which is what I had dubbed the lobster station. People come over pick their victim, out of the water he goes into the steamer and BAM 3 minutes later out he comes dead as a doorknob and steamed bright red, if we ever eat at Legal Seafood again I will definitely NOT be able to sit next the executioner's station :(  After dinner it was still pouring so we grabbed a cab back to the train station and had some hot chocolate while waiting for the train back to Milford.
