New England Vacation #8
This is a fun photo I got the opportunity to snap while we were wandering through The Boston Common. The Boston Common is the oldest public area in the United States. It's a large park with two ponds, hundreds of benches, even more trees, lots of grass, and several statues and memorials. It also offers a view of the Massachusetts capitol building. Both the capitol building and the Boston Common are part of the famous Freedom Trail winding through Boston. These ducks are one of the many statues in this area, and were inspired by the book, "Make Way for Ducks," based on the ponds and ducks of the Boston Common. This little boy was trying out each duck, trying to decide which one he liked to ride best. I couldn't resist this shot!
