All Access Heads to Georges Island

Yesterday on All Access Boston Harbor we hit our highest number of guests on the boat so far this summer—464 children and chaperones!  I’m so glad we decided to trust the weather to hold up, because it turned out to be a beautiful day on Georges Island.  We had groups from Dorchester, Waltham, Roslindale, Hyde Park, Somerville, and Chinatown. 

Many groups spent the afternoon exploring historic Fort Warren, searching for signs of the Lady in Black, and getting spooked in the “dark tunnel”.  The Save the Harbor team split up to facilitate fishing, kickball, and exploring the fort. 

On the boat ride home, we all got a neat surprise—we cruised past the Charles W. Morgan, a historic whaling ship.  The ship sailed to Boston from Provincetown, making her 38th voyage.  The Charles W. Morgan will be docked in the Charlestown Navy Yard until the 22nd!

Today we had to cancel All Access due to thunderstorms and showers that have seemed to last all day.  All of us here at Save the Harbor are looking forward to tomorrow’s Fan Pier Fishing Tournament, and hoping for some sun!

See you on the harbor,

Amy Gaylord
