The 40 minute ride out and back on the ferry costs only $15, which is a great deal. The only issue visiting the Harbor Islands (a Massachusetts State Park)--- is that they close at 6pm, so the island essentially shuts down at 4:30 pm. No more concessions, no more wandering, essentially everyone is waiting in a long line to get back on the ferry. If Britt hadn't gotten in so late, a morning trip and coming back at 3pm would have been perfect, rather than spending a leisurely hour in the shade waiting for the ferry.
But even so, what a trip! It was a gorgeous summer day, and everyone smelled of sunscreen.
Georges Island is home to a pentagonal fort that used to guard Boston against invaders. (seriously, look at all those cannons...they were not messing around).
My city is sparkling!
