Belle Isle Marsh Reservation in East Boston, Massachusetts is Boston’s last remaining salt marsh. It is a family-friendly, dog-friendly (i.e. watch your step!), easy to traverse recreation spot. Because it is near the airport, there is often the interesting juxtaposition of a plane flying over as a white heron or mallard duck or any number of other seabirds look up at a fellow winged beast.
It is a regular hiking spot for Steve and I. I enjoy photographing the foliage in silhouette against the sky …
… and the end of season seeds and berries about to hit the ground.
He enjoys collecting juniper berries for one of his special sauces.
You can read more about Belle Isle here. And, you may read more about Steve’s Juniper Berry Sauce in the near future. Yum. Meanwhile, have a good Monday, folks.
