Not only could Codzilla be called a fish out of water, but it looks like a fish out of water sitting in our very own Gloucester Marine Railways.
I took the boys for a ride in Boston Harbor on Codzilla last summer. They enjoyed it, but it wasn’t as crazy fast and fun as they expected.

I am absolutely in love with this carousel! Boston’s Rose F. Kennedy Greenway is unbelievable in so many ways and the carousel is the cherry on top! The 14 different critters…all hailing from the fine state of Massachusetts…are whimsical yet gorgeous all at once. It is a true piece of art! How wonderful would it be to have a carousel of this caliber here in Gloucester?
The boys and I took the train into the city yesterday and spent 6.5 hours exploring, laughing, and learning between North Station and Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park. We walked through the Haymarket Farmer’s Market, past the North End, and along the docks of the Boston Harbor Marina to check out some of the crazy “mega yachts”. We saw the seals at the New England Aquarium, got some lemon slush, and rode the newish “thrill ride”, CODZILLA (and got wet). The boys played in the splash pad on the Greenway, rode the carousel, and fed the pigeons. We took a horse-drawn carriage ride through the financial district, had a nice outdoor dinner at Ned Divine’s, and then ice cream at The Berry Twist in Faneuil Hall.
My vision for our day in the city involved going at least as far as The Public Gardens, the Frog Pond, and the Swan Boats….but somehow, in the blink of an eye, it was time to catch the 7:40 train outbound to home. A true testament to the wonder of the Greenway and surrounding areas is that we were able to spend an entire day there and still wish that we had more time. Next time.
