Fort Strong - Long Island, Quincy / Boston

After emailing the Boston Public Health Commission I got permission to go out to Long Island, Quincy / Boston, MA

I sort of limited myself by putting in the comment field "Fort Strong" only.
I think If I get the chance again I will ask permission to cheque out the hospital and chapel etc.

So I get to the gate give the guy my "permission slip" and we are off and running.

We get to the very end of the island and a marked cruiser pulls up behind us after he was "hiding" in the woods.

so after getting "Pulled Over" by the Boston Public Health Commission Police. The officer in the car rolls down his window. I wave and he said "what's going on?" I said oh just here to photograph the fort. He says "absolutely not" I laughed and said oh I am sorry I have permission I gave the guard the form. He doesn't say a word and drives away. HA HA oh and it was a "2 man car" interesting.

So we set off to photograph Fort Strong. Here are my best shots from the day.

But yeah you have to get permission before heading out here.
Email the Boston Public Health Commission for permission.
