History, Personal

When someone mentions going to the beach…


I went to the beach yesterday for the first time this season. Granted, it was only at Castle Island, but it still has sand and a bay!

But let’s just talk about Fort Independence for a sec. Fort Independence, a pentagonal five-bastioned fort built between 1834 and 1851, is Castle Island’s 8th fort and was built with granite from the quarries in Rockport, MA. Now since my boyfriend is a huge nerd and history buff, I know this.

But another thing about my lovely boyfriend is that he cannot sit still for more than three minutes. This will be a problem when I take him to the New Jersey Shore for Memorial Day weekend.

If anyone has suggestions for beach activities for a mildly ADHD 23-year-old man please let me know. Tweet at me @alliehearts or comment on this post.
