Day 31 - Mission: Boston, MA

Today, we set off for Boston, Massachusetts.
Before leaving New Jersey, we visited a Guy Fieri stop called the Brownstone Diner.
Here is a link to the episode:
If you watch, you will see how huge the pancakes are. This was not a special thing just for Guy. This is a normal portion. HUGE pancakes! And delicious....
Before leaving Jersey City & heading for Boston, I had to do all of our laundry.
It was time to say goodbye to Liberty Harbor RV Park. You can see in the pictures below, we had a pretty good view of the Statue of Liberty.
We also went on a fruitless search for a real New York pickle. We got to the place and it was a warehouse so they sent a few miles away to their store front. When we got there, they were closed. So we called the warehouse back and they said, "Oh yea, its a Jewish holiday. We will be closed today and tomorrow." Yea, thanks for that.
Finally, we were on the road through Connecticut to Boston, Massachusetts. Our good friend Jay met us there and gave us the 5 star treatment & tours. That evening Jay took us to the North End - the Italian district. We ate a fabulous dinner at Tresca - owned by hockey legend Ray Bourque.
Afterward, we strolled the streets of the North End and had our first encounter with Mike's Pastry. This place was packed! Cannoli seemed to be their speciality, but everything they had looked delicious.
We stopped at Caffe Vittoria for my favorite "Lavazza" espresso.
Two enthusiastic thumbs up for the North End & Boston, so far!

Tomorrow is a big day full of WALKING! My feet are beyond hurting - numb, in fact.
