One man's Castle

Having Castle Island in our backyard is a total luxury. The site, a 22-acre plot that looks out into Boston Harbor, is home to Fort Independence, the eighth generation of forts to occupy the site since 1643. And aside from its historical value, Castle Island offers visitors lush green lawns, unparalleled views, beaches, walkways, playgrounds, the perfect venue for watching planes take off and land from Logan Airport, and “Sullivan’s”, a great spot for cheap hot dogs, French fries, fried clams, and some of the best people-watching in the city.

After a long day of doing nothing, we drove Otis over to Castle Island for a late afternoon walk. It’s one of his favorite places in the world, evidenced by his crying, whining, and hopping around the back seat as we approached the parking lot. Here are some scenes from our visit.

Two requests: 1. Get a room. 2. Wash your feet.

We met another Portuguese Water Dog. His name is Basco and he had what his owner's called a "silver coat". Have never seen a Portie with this type of markings. He was really cute.

    AHAHA. =)

    I've haven't been to Castle Island in years. I'm going to take a day trip and picnic there soon!
