CameraWalking goes to Boston!

When you head out for a vacation, you likely will take your camera to get some fun pictures on your trip.  You have taken your first step to a great CameraWalking experience!  What better way to keep your focus on walking everyday and keep your exercise plan on track than by being a tourist with a purpose. route map Boston Marathon We recently made a trip to Boston to support our daughter-in-law who ran the Boston Marathon.  She was awesome; the city was alive with preparation and support for the Marathon;  and this trip really became a wonderful CameraWalking photo opportunity. SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES We never let-down on our walking, because we kept wanting to get more pictures.  There was so much “new material” and this is what CameraWalking is all about…Being creative with your camera keeps you moving!

Meb Keflezighi from California took First in the Marathon in 2:08:37. Fantastic!

Having a Fitbit Flex wireless activity tracker was another real motivator to get out there and walk.  It was incredible to really see how many steps we got each day and it gave us super incentive to keep pushing to one more site.  Truly, this was the first vacation that I have really kept moving…and wanted to! We saw so much!

Fenway Park… A stop worth making!

I have said it before, but it is worth repeating…having a small camera such as a SamsungWB800 F , with a great zoom and Wi-Fi ability, really makes walking and “snapping” a comfortable project.  I LOVE this camera and I am always ready for a lovely shot.

I also found that using my cell phone was great.  I made a various conscious decision to leave my Canon digital SLR behind to make this adventure easy to handle.  I loved the lightened load!

The Freedom Trail…and incredible history lesson!

We really enjoyed the 2.5 mile Freedom Trail that touched on so much of our country’s early history.  You need to give ample time to follow the red brick road.  There are so many stops along the way…and, remember, touring sites also helps your fitness goals…you are moving, not sitting!

The Old North Church

We took time out of our trail walk to visit the Old North Church. It was incredible to realize we were right there where Paul Revere began his famous ride! Along the Trail, we found Old Ironsides…so awe-inspiring.  This shot of the mast of the USS Constitution gave such a feeling of strength…and history.

And her decks were beautiful and colorful! Old Ironsides boost As we made our way back to the beginning of our day, and many miles later, we found ourselves in the high grasses along the Charles River .

Fun Exploration

Boston offered so much opportunity to really practice CameraWalking. It is a beautiful world of old and new.  The city is fairly flat so it really is made for walking.  Around every corner is a lovely site. You cannot miss the incredible lessons in history. This is a wonderful city that will offer you so much. Whether you have a day or two or a week to lace up your shoes, grab your camera and celebrate the beauty.  You won’t regret it!
