Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Charlestown Navy Yard in Charlestown, Massachusetts. The Charlestown Navy Yard is part of the Boston National Historical Park. The Charlestown Navy yard was established in 1800 and includes the USS Constitution and the USS Cassin Young.
We had a gusty Adventure to the Charlestown Navy Yard. My original plans for today’s Adventure changed unexpectedly, so we ended up finding ourselves at the Charlestown Navy Yard before walking around Boston for about two hours. Unfortunately my camera charged malfunctioned however I did my best to capture our visit on my cell phone.
We were excited to explore the Charlestown Navy Yard. I decided to park at a nearby garage which appeared to be the best option for parking in the area. My crazy dog mama-self was quite happy for Wilma’s first experience in a parking garage, and as expected she was quite thrilled at this new escapade! We were greeted at the entrance of the Park with a large sign, no doubt we were in the correct location. We first headed into the park straight to the USS Constitution. It was hard to find a good angle for a photograph as the nearby dock was blocked off closely but I did my best. The skyline of Boston framed the USS Constitution, creating quite the scene. We walked around the Navy Yard also locating the USS Cassin Young, a spectacular, strong framed vessel. We peered out into the harbor and found lots of sailboats floating, surprising to see this time of year. We explored all parts of the Yard, locating the Museum, and various anchors, sea monuments, and memorials throughout. This area was quiet, although there were others wandering and exploring. The Charlestown Navy Yard was very small, but still nice to Adventure to the Yard today (This blog will not be rated).
