Today, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay held its annual staff day out on Spectacle Island. With temperatures in the mid-80s along with bright blue skies, we all had a fantastic day. The day started off at the Bank of America Pavilion where a group of kids ready to go out on our All Access boat gathered to learn the history of Spectacle Island, and to prepare for a fun boat ride over. Once we docked at the island, I had a chance to go exploring with Andrew and Karrisha. We decided to take the path that boasted beautiful views of Boston's skyline, and then headed down to Bruce and Patty's boat for another delicious lunch. Despite the food that was begging us to eat even more, we all could not help but sense the desire in the air to start an intense game of capture the flag on top of the island. Although the game had to be cut short in order to make our boat that brought us back to Boston, the game was fun and intense nevertheless, and I can't wait to see what our staff beach party day holds for us!
