Paddle Thomson Island

The Boston Globe has a nice series of things to do outside of Boston that might be of interest to Bostonites or New
Englanders. This piece talks about paddling
Thomson Island, one of the islands making up the Boston Harbor Islands National Park.

The island is close to the city. In fact they say that you can pretty much be on the water with your butt in your
kayak in half an hour. The island is great for exploration and quiet, so it could be the ideal place to get away from
the din of the city.
