Chairs on Georges Island

Once upon a time, before the rains came, like last week, Photographynatalia visited Georges Island in Boston Harbor.

The tugboat Liberty suffered an engine fire off Georges Island shortly after 8 a.m. today - just as a man was falling off a fishing boat.

The Boston Fire Department promptly summoned its dive team, which promptly got stuck in traffic because it's not based on the water. However, the Coast Guard reports the fire was declared out before the BFD marine unit got out to the tugboat and that a passing boater picked up the person in the water.

Babies outside on Long Island

The Boston Public Library has put up more than 300 Harbor Island photos and drawings from the 19th and 20th centuries, including a photo of some nurses and babies on Long Island, back in 1930, when it had a hospital and a Civil War-era photo of Ft. Warren on Georges Island, when it still had live cannons.

Great Blue Hill

The fort is great for such framed views, given that it has zillions of slits and holes for cannons, guns and binoculars:

Evan chronicles a trip to this island in the outer harbor:

... This is probably one of the best day trip deals in Boston...$12 weekend rate gets you a round trip on a high-speed catamaran out to Spectacle and Georges Islands, a good distance away from the city and near where Boston Harbor meets the Atlantic Ocean. ...
