In early January we went back for a third time to Halibut Point. It was a cold but beautiful day and this is definitely a park for year round enjoyment. Plus I’m sharing a memory of a toboggan, a childhood idea for a sled jump, and the unhappy ending to that story!
We’ve hiked in Lexington 3+ times in the past 12 months. After our most recent hike on New Year’s Weekend, I realize why. It’s the perfect spot for a hike, whether alone, with friends or with family, any time of the year.
A few weeks ago we hiked at Breakheart Reservation. If you grew up north of Boston, perhaps you remember this park? It’s had some upgrades and is a perfect place to hike pretty much any time of the year! Did it have a fountain when you went there?
We went hiking recently at Harold Parker State Forest, and it brought back summer memories from childhood. Did you have a favorite place to swim? I had a few, and two are still around!
On Halloween we took a hike in Arlington at the Alewife Brook Reservation. In this post I reminisce about Halloweens past, and the beauty we discovered so close to home, and a snowy Halloween that is so different than those celebrations of days past.
We returned to a favorite hike of ours at Walden Pond in Concord MA today. We arrived early and were greeted with the most beautiful autumn foliage, fog lifting off the water, and a peaceful hike around the pond!
We revisited a park we went to back in 2010. Believe it or not, almost the exact same day 10 years later! And when we came home I made this curried squash and apple soup. Why not try it? And head to the island now that the plovers are done doing their thing~
Walking along the Battle Road Trail in Concord, and a filling and healthy lentil stew to make for a sunny autumn day
We recently revisited Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State Park in Uxbridge, MA. After 10 years, it is still beautiful and a great place for family, friends and dogs to wander, enjoy the water, get some fresh air, and explore! I hope you agree.
We revisited Moore State Park this weekend and although there was a lot of construction going on, and flowers were pretty much done, this park is always a beautiful, peaceful place to wander and connect with nature.
