Visitation to the Boston Harbor Islands Up

Interesting article in the Waltham Daily News Tribune the other day that visitation to the Boston Harbor Islands is up this year. Good to see that the increase in ferry prices didn't have too much of a dampening effect, and it's nice to see people in metropolitan Boston getting out these great resources that are right in their backyard. Hopefully some of these island visitors are toting a copy of Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands. I've also heard anecdotally that boat traffic in Boston Harbor is down around 40% this year, no doubt in large part to the increased fuel prices. Amazing if that is true.
