April Vacation, Thursday, the 21st, 2005
  Pack 12 to Boston on a Sunny 50* day

Drove to Alewife & take the Redline to Park St  
  Thanks to Senator Brewer's Office in Setting up our Tour

After the tour, we went across the street  & had lunch on the Common


After lunch we took the Green line to North Station & hiked a few blocks to the USS Constitution,
which is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world.

  It was first launched in 1797. Constitution is one of six ships ordered for construction by George Washington to protect America's growing maritime interests. The ships greatest glory came during the war of 1812 when she defeated four British frigates and earned her the nickname "Old Ironsides," because cannon balls glanced off her thick hull. The ship was restored in 1927 with contributions from the nation's school children.

Some stayed to visit the Museum & other ships & some ventured home
Hike back to the T, (take Green Line to Park, then the Red line to Alewife)
