Quincy Market and the Cadets

Posted in Travel, USA by Dennis Wright on November 12, 2008

There was some sort of quasi military event going on in the square between the back of Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. Like a passing out parade with lots of young people in uniform milling around with proud glowing parents in tow. It seemed to have something to do with the Navy because a squad of navy cadets assembled and embarked on a march down the side of Quincy Market, away from Faneuil Hall. It turns out they were attached to the USS Constitution, an attraction we come to later on the Freedom Trail. We kept running into them again and again. There was no escaping them.

We did have a wander through Quincy Market. It seemed to be mainly souvenir tee-shirts and snack bars.
