Our flight was not until 4:45pm so we had a couple more hours to explore Boston. We had planned to go to the Public Garden, but we left the hotel late and ended up only going to the Quincy Market. On our way there, we got a little lost and ended up at the Boston Harbor and Wharf area. At the Quincy Market, we stumbled upon a comic book shop and spent a good amount of time there before getting lunch inside the market building. This time, I tried the lobster macaroni and cheese at the Boston Chowda Company. I always wanted to try it, but this one was just okay. It wasn’t too flavorful. By the time we finished eating, we had to head back to the hotel and check out. We took the Embassy Suites shuttle to the airport. The driver was very nice and helped us move our luggage onto the shuttle. By the time we went through TSA and arrived at our gate, we only had about 30 minutes left before boarding. We had a layover in Milwaukee. We had just enough time to grab dinner before our flight. When we sat down after getting our food, it started pouring heavily with lightning and thunder. We thought that our flight was going to be delayed. Fortunately, the rain only lasted about 15 or so minutes. It was weird because after the pouring rain, it became very sunny and there were even rainbows. It was still sprinkling slightly when we boarded our plane, but we were on time to head back to San Francisco.
It was about 10:30pm when we arrived back in San Francisco. It was very cold compared to the warm weather we were used to in the East Coast. Boston weather was actually closer to San Francisco’s as it was gloomy and somewhat cold.
