George's Island

My sister and I took the Harbor Express ferry to George's Island in Boston Harbor. The ferry covers the five mile trip in just twenty minutes. At twenty knots it is a fast and fun ride. It was much cooler on the Island than in town. Lots of people were sunbathing, eating picnics, and in general having a good time. In peak season the boats leave every half hour on the weekend from Long Wharf. We did not visit the civil war era Fort Warren, where at one point the vice president of the confederacy was held.
