Castle Island

Looking back at the city, you can even make out the Pru!

So last night Eric and I drove out to Castle Island in South Boston. We hadn’t been there before, but I’d heard it was kinda cool

It’s more or less just the site of Fort Independence, a five sided fortress from the 1800s, but the whole island has been made into a state park. Of course, the fact that we drove to it and walked up to it may make you question as to its true island-ness. It used to be an island, somewhere along the way they filled it in so it could be visited more easily.

We had a pretty nice time checking it out. Glad we went late, though, it was super hot during the day!
