On Georges Island there is a great old Civil War fort (Warren) built in 1850 that is open to the public, has a ton of history, and is well maintained. Great place to hangout, albeit a little crowded as it is a popular park. From Georges we headed through the Hull Gut, where in-coming and out-going tides can be tricky. Once we got through the Gut, we were in the peaceful harbor around Peddock's Island, one of the largest islands in the national park. It was a long day, so this is where we decided to set up camp for the night. Found a quiet spot on the island and enjoyed beautiful views of the Boston skyline and Atlantic Ocean at night.
The next day we headed south again and circumnavigated Peddock's Island. After that we headed north again and made our way bay to the northern side of the harbor, stopping on Rainsford and Long Islands on the way. Took about 6 or 7 hours to get to the campsite, including lunch and all the stops, and took about 3.5 - 4 hours to make it back to Winthrop.
