I'd been wanting to do something summer-like before the summer vanished, and had been wanting a boat ride. So I finally decided to go to Spectacle Island. I hadn't been out to any of Boston's Harbor Islands in many years and this one is new. (Well, the island itself isn't new but it's being a park is new.) So after several failed scheduling attempts (due to incessant rain this summer) I finally made it out there last sunday, with [livejournal.com profile] denicemarcell and [livejournal.com profile] gracewillow.

There was a little beach with swimming and a lifeguard and everything! Next time I go I'm bringing my swimsuit.


On the return boat ride I stood in the very front of the boat, holding on tight to the railing while the boat moved at high speed, picking up lots of wind. It was such a warm day I wasn't at all cold in shorts and a sleeveless t-shirt. As long as I didn't look down at the waves I managed to keep from getting motion sick. It was exhilarating! :-)
