Castle Island / Pleasure Bay

01September2014 ~ 2 mile hike…boy it was hot

Another family adventure.  We sure didn't plan it well.  Water Wizz when it was cold and Castle Island when it's really hot.  But, we had a good time.  Castle Island which is in South Boston is the perfect place for everyone.  Runner, walker, the locals and families were every where.


We started our day with a 2 mile walk around Pleasure Bay.


We packed snacks and drinks so we picked up sandwiches and chicken fingers at Sullivan's, the only eatery in the area.  After lunch the girls played on the playground.  


Then we took the Fort Independence tour.  It was fascinating.  Dave and L seemed to really take it in.  Lexiloo went with the program except for when we need to go through tunnels and up and downstairs.  I had to carry her or she would have slowed down the train.  She was and is always in her "I do" mode.


We think Ong Noi would really like area and tour.  It has history, walking and airplanes.


The kids studying the cannons.  


Dave and his girls at the top of Fort Independence.




After the tour, we headed over to the bay.


The water was COLD, but the kids didn't seem to notice or didn't say much about it.


Lexiloo loved seeing the airplanes on their descent to Logan Airport.  We were so close to the airplanes. 
  

See those two heads.  L went out pretty far with Dave.  She had a life jacket on, but we think it was pretty brave of her.


Lexiloo wanted to join in on the fun. 



It was a fun day.  We ended the day with ice cream cones.  It was a good Labor Day.

{Thought for next time…bring the big camera.}
