I was happy that we ended up at Spectacle because it gave me the opportunity to swim, which is my all-time favorite activity. The water was perfectly refreshing (though a bit saltier than I prefer) and it was great fun to chase after the floating disc of the Frisbee and pose for pictures with all the summer staff. We had plenty of food and a beautiful day to relax, explore, and enjoy one another's company.
It's hard to believe that just a few decades ago Spectacle Island was a flaming trash heap and the harbor waters were clogged with waste! The harbor has become such a special, abundant place to play, fish, and learn, and I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of Save the Harbor's outreach and education efforts. It's exciting to know that this ecosystem will continue to be a resource for Boston residents and visitors for years to come.
See you on the islands!
