The Fort and The Ocean

Another gem in South Boston. It is used to be a real Fort for English since 1963. Now it is a state park with playground and great open space for picnic with families or just relax to enjoy the weather. ย There are several memorials also in there, like South Boston Korean War Memorial. The unique thing about this Fort that the shape is like pentagon (if we see it from above). We can see the ocean from the Fort, and we had a great day played in the playground and walked around the Fort. Aghnan really enjoyed playing in the playground. And somehow, he enjoy the swing set more than usual. Maybe the effect of the roller coaster from Six Flags still lingered. ๐Ÿ˜†

Then we went to have dinner at Toro. I’ve been dying to go back again to Toro. Well, Toro is one of the best Tapas in Boston. And with this spring weather, it will be really nice to sit outside at the Patio and enjoying Tapas. ๐Ÿ™‚ We ordered, Maiz Asado con Alioli y Queso Cotija (Grilled Corn with Aged Cheese), Gambas al Ajillo (Griddled garlic shrimp) and Asado de Huesos (Roasted bone marrow with radish citrus salad and oxtail marmalade). The food was amazing!! I personally love love love the grilled corn and shrimp. Especially the shrimp. The seafood from New England never fail me!. It’s delicious..
