Eighteen-mile ride this afternoon along the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, from Acton to Chelmsford and back. I didn’t start taking pictures until the return trip, so this is north to south.
Swag from the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston, discovered in the cellar last week. Expiration date: April 6, 2005.
We had a great time with friends Saturday on the rail trail in Salem, Windham and Derry, New Hampshire — 18 miles total. There was even a nice little outdoor lunch place along the way.
Along Perkins Row in Topsfield, in the middle of an 18-mile ride. This is Mile Brook, looking north.
No need to recontextualize this one: “the War of the Rebellion.” In Wenham Center, on a bike ride earlier today.
We rode 16-plus miles today along the Minuteman Bikeway from Lexington center and the Reformatory Branch Trail from Bedford to Concord, which was new to use. Enjoy!
I was in Winchester center a little while ago picking up Chinese food when I saw about a half-dozen people with serious-looking cameras. It turned out they were birders. I’m not sure what they told me this guy was, but I think I heard someone say it was a night heron. So here’s my crappy, over-enlarged smartphone picture.
