Where I grew up.

Recommended Posts

Winthrop Massachusetts.  East of Boston and maybe 1 air mile from KBOS.

Approaching the former island from Logan, this island was the setting for The Scarlet Letter.

The beach where I used to jog to keep in shape, it's called Shore Drive.

My first school, I went here from grades 1 through 6.  It's now condos.  This school was literally mere yards from the house I lived in.

You can see how close this town was from KBOS.

The Fort Heath condos.  This place used to be a WW2 fort and as a kid, before they built these condos I'd explore the underground tunnels.  But after they built these condos, as a very lonely child I'd fly my hand built box kites on the rocks directly below the nose of the chopper.

I really like the shots 👍 but maybe it was better not to use photogrammetry at those low altitudes. 🤔
Do you agree?

Hi efis, thanks.  If I didn't use PG then I wouldn't have seen the buildings despite how melted they look.  I reckon it's the limitations of PG for now.

Nice way to relive those moments. Maybe for you MSFS is the next best thing to a Time Machine.

Thanks Bernd.  I like the 407 as it's easy to fly and hover then take shots.

Thanks John.  If that's the case I wish to go back to the 1700's 😁

Thanks Paul but I, glad I'm away from there.  It's not a very pleasant place to live.
