The boat sailed passed Spectacle Island, Long Island and stopped momentarily at Georges Island where I saw Fort Warren. Fort Warren was built during the Civil War, but by the time it was completed it was used mainly for training, a look-out point for patrol, and a prison for Confederate soldiers. It is said that the island is haunted by the Lady in black, the wife of a confederate soldier named Mrs. Lanier who attempted on rescuing her imprisoned husband, but only succeeding on killing him with a stray bullet. After the death of her husband, Mrs. Lanier was convicted as a spy and hung for her "crimes". Supposedly, she has haunted the island ever since! My last Georges island fact of this post is that in 1958 Fort Warren became a National Historic Site.
After Georges Island, we saw Peddocks Island as we passed through through Hull Gut and entered Hingham Bay. In Hingham Bay I saw Grape Island before reaching our last stop, Quincy T stop on the boat. Then, we went back the way we came.
Some of my highlights included the boat ride, scenic view, a crab I saw, and the wonderful coffee I had on the Waterfront from Dunkin Donuts.
