Georges Island

Last weekend I braved the 33 degree temp outside (lots of layers is the key) and went on a special winter cruise to Georges Island in Boston Harbor. It had snowed a bit the day before and the sun was out which made for excellent shooting conditions.

Georges Island home to Fort Warren which takes up most of the 39 acres. The fort dates back to 1833 and was first used as a training camp and then to house Confederate soldier prisoners during the Civil War.

I had such a great time taking photos of not only the natural landscape but also the inside and outside of the fort (such great texture!). Here are a few shots:

The ferries will start going to Georges regularly in May and I'm already looking forward to another visit. For a complete schedule of future winter cruises, visit Boston's Best Cruises.
