Day 6: Make Way For Girl Scouts!

Boston was the destination's destination on Thursday, Day 6.  Their "Boston by Foot" tour started out at the Potato Famine statue at the foot of School Street (site of the first school in North American, Boston Latin School, founded in 1635 and still going strong) and ending at the new State House (completed in 1798!) 
Lunch and shopping at Fanueil Hall provided a needed break from touring.   The girls then boarded a Duck Boat for a tour of the Charles River and waterfront area.

What would a tour of Boston be worth without a visit to Mr and Mrs Mallard and Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack and Quack?

The girls returned to campus for dinner and a writing seminar with Author Edith Maxwell, whose "Local Foods" mystery series is set on a farm in the North Shore of Massachusetts, and features a character named Ellie, a Senior Girl Scout working on her Locavore badge.
