The Best Beach Bash In Boston!

Yesterday was arguably the most fun day of the entire summer. Not only did I get to end my day over at Constitution Beach in East Boston for a Better Beaches event, but I got to begin my day by arriving at the Curley Recreation Center in South Boston to help set up for our end of the summer beach bash! This incredible event invited our summer youth participants down to the beach to help us celebrate a successful summer with activities including kite flying, fishing, sand castle sculpting, art, swimming, sports and an unbelievable lobster touch tank! All throughout the day, you could see and hear nothing except for smiles and laughter coming from the kids, and seeing them have a day full of fun and excitement was the perfect way to end summer programming. I personally thoroughly enjoyed the day, getting to spend the majority of it directly in the water, helping the other lifeguards monitor all of the swimming! Kids continuously swam up to me through the afternoon, asking questions such as "Are there sharks here???!!," and "Will a crab bite me?!" I find it really hard to express in words what the day meant for everyone, so hopefully the photos below will help sum the day up!
