From Peaks Island, looking towards House Island and the downtown skyline. House Island recently became a designed historic district since "half of the island was part of a network of immigration stations used from the 1890s through the mid-1920."

Sunset at Forest

We've gotten some dramatic sunsets lately, perhaps it's due to the changing of the seasons and the cooler temperatures at night (just a guess). This one is from where Forest Avenue meets Congress Street.
