Last week while we are the conference I mentioned in the last post, we had a lot of time on Saturday to wander around the peninsula where we were staying. One of the places we went was to the remnants of Fort Revere (a fort from the Revolutionary War). The fort stood high on a hill overlooking one of the entrances into Boston’s ports. You can still see where the canons were placed to get the maximum amount of range. What mostly remains are a series of rooms, corridors and tunnels dug into the side of the hill.
After exploring the area and taking pictures of the gorgeous view and the two lighthouses, what is there for a group of friends to do at a place like this? Play sardines! And it was a lot of fun. For those of you not familiar with this game, it is basically yher opposite of hide and seek. One person hides and everyone else tries to find them. The person who loses is the one who is the last to find the one who hid (Want to play at home? click here for more info). For almost two hours we played, running and hiding in the dark rooms and corridors, hoping no one would find you. The best hiding spot was W.’s. He simply crouched along a wall in the darkest room in the fort. Several of us walked within two or three feet of him as we passed by without seeing him. It was great fun. If we go back to the same place next year, I want a re-match!
