It was a shame yesterday was so rainy and dreary. We wanted to play in the town a bit more. There's a wonderful sushi place called Salt Society that we thoroughly enjoyed. More to explore, too.
|That'd be Boston in the distance.
The goal was to get to Peddocks Island but as we came into the harbor we noticed a fort to our right. Quick research revealed it had mooring balls and a dinghy dock. So, we veered right and Dockwa-ed* (sure, let's make a new verb) a ball. No one was there. We picked one with the most depth since the tidal swing is 10 feet here and we didn't want to fret. Within an hour we noticed a boat come by. The pilot was from the marina that manages these balls. He was just checking which one we'd taken and approved us right there.

|Ramparts. No more guns, tho.
|6 acres of parade ground within Fort Warren.
|One of the few forts where they just let you
wander around and explore. Many signs are
around warning you "this place is dangerous."
This is called the Dark Hall.
|A magazine. Not lit. Just watch your step.
|From the fort you can see us and the city.
*Dockwa: an app that allows you to reserved slips and balls with marinas. We've know about it for a while but it's relatively useless in Florida. In New England, however, they use it efficiently, contacting you within the hour with a confirmation and information.
