|That's a long way to the top!|
|Brennan and I made it!|
We then checked out the visitor center and I learned about some the activities Brennan had been doing there with interpretation. We also had private tour of the U.S.S. Cassin Young.

Day two of the visit showed us the view from a different side of the National Parks of Boston – the Boston Harbor Islands NRA! We took the ferry to Georges Island and used the time to begin work on our junior ranger books. We only had time to visit one island, but we'll be back -maybe for some camping? These islands are an incredible mix of history and nature, all with an amazing view of the Boston skyline!
At the island, Brennan led us on a special tour of the fort, the junior rangers received their first badges and inspected some sealife that had washed ashore.
