Visiting Boston with Martin and Susan Bruegel

July 11, 2009
Martin and Susan stopped in for a couple of nights on their way from Pennsylvania to a Maine camping vacation, so on Saturday I headed into Boston with them and Barbara and George for a tour of the city and to see the tall ships that were in town for the week.
