After lunch, the crowds were massive as I approached the USS Constitution. So, I had to choose between switching to photos or going somewhere else to sketch comfortably. I chose the former.
These are some of my photos from the remainder of the day.
The best $1.70 of the day was spent taking the water shuttle (on the T) from Charlestown Navy Yard to Long Wharf. (The one-way fare is just $1.70. Really.) The view — including the Picton Castle photo shown above — was incredible, and the cool breezes were wonderful.
Tip: Get shuttle tickets early if you’re there for a Tall Ships event. I stood in line for over an hour. It was definitely worthwhile, but next time I’ll purchase my tickets in the morning, before the crowds arrive.
