Boston was supposed to have this huge storm on Wednesday July 18, 2012. A bunch of Save the Harbor / Save the Bay staff were coming from Spectacle Island. We were leaving the island and all of a sudden it got very dark. We all watched everything happen from lightning to the water color changing. It was exciting to see the water turn from green to turquoise green-ish blue. We saw the clouds forming over the northwest part of Boston. As we were sailing on the harbor, the wind was blowing tremendously. The waves were beautiful, heavy, and loud. To see how the color of the clouds changed the color and energy of the water was just amazing. This experience hit me really hard because I had never been away from Boston on an open body of water enough to see something like this so it was definitely a sight to see.
