    Pretty cool. Guess you didn't see that "no trespassing" sign.....

    I fly to Boston every Tues/Wed. Never knew these were there. but then again, never really get a chance to leave the office when I'm there.
    Of course not Michael..... I was careful, did not disturb anything.. Left no trace, as people should do. Also if you get a chance take a trip out to George's island you will like it. Ferry's run out there on a frequent schedule.

    A great place to go if Boston is attacked by a division of Nazi Zombies.
    Fun pictures to see friend.

    Sorry couldn't help myself...
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Lol, sounds like a plan! On the islands there is a abundance of wild raspberries and sumac and thorns big enough to stop the hulk lol.

    Hahahahha, I would of! but they were out of toilet paper! it was a composting toilet. Didn't even step inside. The floor was pretty sketchy. I am guessing it's not even ten years old. There also used to be a dock at great Brewster, but it was washed away? Not sure what happen to it...They built up the island pretty well. But it's all overgrown now.

    Also random fact, Long Island in Boston harbor was the island where the USA gov't snuck in the Nazi scientists during operation paper clip. The Island has a decent fort, but off limits to general public unless you get permission to go. (Got permission! Going out there in the spring of 2016 with a friend!)
