Ran a 5k at the Stone Zoo Saturday evening; it was part road-race, part trail-race, but I managed to beat my own personal 5k record – by 14 seconds.  Which doesn’t sound like all that much – it ISN’T all that much – but it’s so nice to see progress, you know?

Sunday morning we were up and out early, took a short drive through Southie to Castle Island.

It was a gloriously beautiful summer day.










We got there a couple of hours before the fort opened for visitors, and scrambled around the island happily until noon.  Unfortunately, despite all web resources saying self-guided tours of the fort were available, we were disappointed to be told that visitors had to take a guided tour to gain entrance.  I don’t know about you, but the notion of dragging my kids through a 45-minute tour led by a senior citizen was not appealing to Larry and me.
