The Fort and The Ocean

Another gem in South Boston. It is used to be a real Fort for English since 1963. Now it is a state park with playground and great open space for picnic with families or just relax to enjoy the weather. ย There are several memorials also in there, like South Boston Korean War Memorial. The unique thing about this Fort that the shape is like pentagon (if we see it from above). We can see the ocean from the Fort, and we had a great day played in the playground and walked around the Fort. Aghnan really enjoyed playing in the playground. And somehow, he enjoy the swing set more than usual. Maybe the effect of the roller coaster from Six Flags still lingered. ๐Ÿ˜†

Boston Children’s Museum

Finally, a date with Aghnan at Boston Children’s Museum!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve heard wonderful things about this place from our (former) neighbor and I was dying to take Aghnan there. Unfortunately, until yesterday I haven’t found the right time to take Aghnan there. Since Ayah needed to go to New York yesterday, it’s only Aghnan and I that finally went there. We took the train to go to the museum. We stopped by at Park Street from Green Line, changed to Red Line and then aligned to South Station. The museum is located near the Financial District and adjacent to the Boston Tea Party Museum. It’s bright and sunny day withย weather reached 31 degrees Celsius. Oh well, sooner than I expected, welcome summer in Boston!

The admission fee is 14 USD for adult and 1-15 years old children. It is not exactly cheap but if we come on Friday 5 pm – 9 pm the admission is only 1 USD. ย Maybe we can try to go on Friday evening next time. We arrived around 11 am and not exactly lunch time, but I decided to give him lunch before we hooked up to the museum. Of course it didn’t go pretty well. Aghnan made this sour face while he munched his food. He said several times that he wanted to go home until reaching annoying stage ๐Ÿ˜† it’s changed to opposite direction when we finally go inside the museum. The museum has three floors for visitors and we started from the first floor.

Union Oyster House, Green Walk and The Rest of North End

Memorial day this weekend, in combination with nice weather will only mean one thing. Bostonian will go out to enjoy the city. I always explore North End (one of the most iconic part of the city) with the girls, now it’s time to explore it with Ayah and Aghnan ๐Ÿ™‚ Since I have this crave for seafood and I haven’t got the chance to eat the symbol of Boston (Lobster), I guess it will be nice to try something new. My first is Union Oyster House. One of the oldest tavern in America. This restaurant is really iconic, it is even part of the famous Freedom Trail. It is also tourist’s main attraction, so if you want to secure your seat in the restaurant it is better to reserve it first.

We went there for lunch and I’m glad I made reservation. Because even for lunch time people lining up to get seated. They still maintain their old style interior which is very New England in the 19th century ๐Ÿ™‚ We seated on a booth near the Lobster aquarium ๐Ÿ˜† . We decided to ordered Boiled Lobster with Coleslaw and French Fries, also Shrimp Scallop with rice and tomatoes. It is our first experience to eat Lobster and we were so excited ๐Ÿ™‚ While we were waiting for the food they served us Corn Bread with Butter which is very very delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚

Charleston Navy Yard

Maybe this is the best time living in Boston. (Finally) An amazing weather (bye bye snow, puffy jacket and heavy boots) and I’ve finished probably the hardest two semesters in BU. So now, I can really really enjoy Boston. The best thing is, I will enjoy it with my loved one.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, I’ve made another travelling plan. Some places and cities across East coast, Midwest and West Coast are to be visited, but this is the best time to enjoy Boston and live and breath like a Bostonian.

I think I’ve mentioned earlier that my decision to choose Boston was the best decision I’ve ever made. I met amazing new best friends, I loved my professors (they really inspire me) and Boston is such amazing amazing city. I love love love Boston very much. Probably just like Carrie Bradshaw love love love New York City very much, yeah this is how I feel for Boston. I am so glad that my family can experience living here. This definitely will be the most unforgettable experience for them. ๐Ÿ™‚ย So, bear with me. I will talk talk a lot about Boston. I want to preserve as much as I can about this city in this blog ๐Ÿ™‚
