A Walk through History Silver Lake Beach, Bellingham, MA

We met recently at Silver Lake Beach to wander the area, and talk about a little of the history of the area. This was a “go-to” destination in the days before cars were common. Over the years the area offered a carousel, a dance hall, a skating rink, and even diving horses! It is often difficult to imagine all this activity when strolling the area on a spring morning, when we were about the only people there. Continue reading

Hence, a very subjective list of the top ten favorite places we visited this past year, 2020. Continue reading

Now to find the best places to visit where the trolling motor will not become fouled in late season water weeds. We headed out for a test run to the Blackstone River, departing from the Blackstone Gorge. Continue reading

Have a Plan B, exploring in Central MA

We headed out to Dudley, MA, planning to park at Nichols College to bike a rural route from there on road. The sun shone bright, we found a spot next to the entrance to the college, and saw next to no one around. Everything was a go, bike all set, extra ice packed, bike tools packed, snacks. And then, the cooling vest didn’t quite work right. Continue reading
