    We were awake again and silly o'clock and decided just to make the most of the short time we had here. We got up and showered and dh decided he would like to eat breakfast at the same place as yesterday. It was a hotter day again today, the locals kept telling us they were going to be getting a heat wave in the next couple of days, i dread to think as it was 95 degrees whilst we were there.

    Dh had a healthy omelette for breakfast were i choose the very unhealthy french toast with banana fosters ( i eat healthy all year, were's he does not ;)) It was very yummy but i was beaten after eating only half of it.

    We had a stroll around Faneuil hall but most of it was shut due to not opening till 10am but it was nice to see it with out the crowds.

    We made our way down to the wharf for our whale watching tour which was at 10am. We got a cold drink and sat near the boat people watching. People started to form a queue so we joined them when this chinese guy came along and ordered everyone to stand in an orderly line by the boat, nobody listen. A member of staff came along and asked the same when the chinese guy (tourist) when into a frenzy saying i told them that and they did nothing :d::d:. He had been on the trip the day before and did not see any whales so was given a ticket for another day.

    Thankfully there were plenty of whales for us to see.

    After an hour of watching the whales we made our way back (we were out there for 4 hours although was told 3 hours)

    We made our way back to Quincy market to grab a quick burger. We then decided to have a walk around the waterfront marina. This was a really lovely walk and boy do some people have lots of money.

    We made our way back to the hotel for a rest as the heat and all the walking is taking it's toll.

    We then made our way down to the harbour for dinner and ate at Joe's American bar and diner.

    Dh had salmon and i had the lobster ravioli which was very yummy :tounge:. I washed this down with a fruit salad cocktail which went down very well

    The food really was good.

    We decided to check out the area for a bit but being a Sunday most shops were closing so we decided perhaps an early night
