A Day On Boston Harbor

10 06 2014

I had the opportunity to spend a day in Boston Harbor on a boat with some friends. It was a picture perfect day with calm seas and big white puffy clouds. A great day for photographs. Here are a few photos from that day. I hope you enjoy them.

The photographs are mine. I gave credit and a link to the information noted.
