Bos614.1Last weekend on a quick weekend trip back to New England (from my new digs in Kansas just outside of KC, MO), I had the great privilege of spending the evening with my dear friend Lynda and her husband in Weymouth, MA just south of Boston. Following a lovely dinner we went for a walk at sunset in Webb Memorial State Park which offers a great view of the Boston skyline across the harbor.

I was pleased to have been able to take a few great shots of the sunset and the red glow it cast across the Boston skyline in the distance. I had been visiting Lynda at her home in Weymouth for many years and had never been to this park before – which made the evening even more special.

About Webb Memorial State Park in Weymouth, MA: “Located on Boston Harbor close to the Boston Harbor Islands, Webb Memorial offers quiet enjoyment and vistas of the harbor and Boston skyline. The park is a scenic peninsula that extends nearly half a mile into Hingham Bay. Recreational activities include fishing, picnicking and walking. A large pavilion with grills is available for rent to organized groups from May through October. The two glacial hills and connecting lowland that form Weymouth Neck and Webb Memorial have been sculpted by natural and human forces for over 12,000 years. The area was used extensively by Native Americans because of its wealth of shellfish, finfish and wild fruits. European settlers used the area primarily for agriculture until the end of the nineteenth century. Boats depart from nearby Hewitt’s Cove in Hingham to Boston Harbor Islands.”
