A great place to go on a hot summer day is out to one of the islands in Boston Harbor which is adjacent to Quincy Bay. This is a beach on Spectacle Island, which had its topography changed when it became part of Boston's Central Artery/Tunnel Project known to many as the "Big Dig". Sediment and clay that was excavated for the project was brought to this island and when the project was done it was made into a park which is now part of the National Park Service. There are no inhabitants other than park rangers; it offers hiking trails and a great view of the Boston skyline. There is a ferry boat from Quincy that will take you there.
I am heading north for some of that refreshing Canadian air; I may miss a couple days of posting . . . but will be taking lots of pictures. À bientôt!

A late winter snowstorm named "Stella" is due to bear down on the Northeast Tuesday!
After today's snowfall, the sky took on a watercolor glow of pink, purple and blue. It was a winter wonderland once again.
From atop Penn's Hill, Abigail Adams and her young son John, could have heard the women chanting in Boston today.
