On the island we hiked (leisurely walked) around. In all we did about 5 miles! Mid way through we stopped at one of the gazebos and ate our packed picnic lunch. The views from the top of the island are great, Boston is truly breathtaking!
After our hike we strolled along the shore to collect sea glass. The island is well known for the amount of sea glass that washes up. The park rangers ask you to leave the sea glass on the island for others to enjoy, so please don't ask me what I did with mine (craft coming soon?)
As the day was winding down we took a dip in the water and laid out on the beach. There were a lot of summer camps on the island so we waited until 4ish until the beach was empty.
Once we were packed and ready to go, we sat on adirondack chairs watching the ferry approach. As we were leaving the staff was preparing for their weekly clambake. It looked delicious, but cost $95 to partake.
If you have not explored the Boston Harbor Islands I highly suggest making a day of it! You can find more information here! Enjoy.
