I had so much fun at Save the Harbor this summer! We did so much in such a short time, including fishing, beach clean-ups, visiting the aquarium, walking around a few marshes and the Charles River, and a lot more! But my favorite part this summer was visiting different beaches and the Boston Harbor Islands and learning about the different marine animals and plants that lived there. I also loved that we got to visit a new place every day.
This week was really fun. On Tuesday, we went to Georges Island, and walked around Fort Warren, which was built and used as a training facility for Union soldiers and a prison for Confederate officers and officials during the Civil War. We walked through the Dark Tunnel and to the Dark Arch, which was an interesting experience, considering I couldn't see anyone or anything. I just followed the sound of everyone screaming to to find my way around. We also went to the fort's bakery where I was lifted into the oven and "baked" alive.

I had a lot of fun this summer and despite Covid, I think that we made the most of our time together. Thanks for such a great summer!
