At the Harbor, day 1

My overall perception of the Boston harbor begins with my initial observation of it; made possible by professor Berman today. I was able to notice a clean, pleasant to the eye, beautiful harbor (despite the extreme heat) utilized by those seeking refuge from the city for fishing, jet skiing or other useful purposes such as transportation through ferry use, a great alternative for those seeking a different commute than that from the roads, especially on a day like today.

Over the past few years as we have heard, (prior to the cleanup) the reality is that people were not always able to make use of these waters so favorably and enjoy it as much as they do today, due to all the impurities being dumped in it. Luckily for all of us, through some positive and responsible thinking, people were finally able to recognize the importance of having a clean harbor, considering its effects to everyone around it in the bigger picture. While also pursuing to do something about it, example of the "Save the Harbor, Save the Bay" organization.
