Spy Pond at dusk

It was a quite a day Saturday. This one is of Spy Pond in Arlington.

Somewhere over the rainbow

I took at 21-mile ride to Watertown Square and Fresh Pond earlier today — sunny and warm when I started out, but then I got caught in the rain. At least this was worth it. Along the Belmont Community Path.

Apples and bees

You can’t tell from these pictures, but Cider Hill Farm in Amesbury was deluged with hundreds if not thousands of people on Saturday. We ended up high-tailing it out of there after we were swarmed by bees (not the bees below — at least I don’t think so) while we were trying to eat our apple-cider donuts.

Ready for picking
Amid the apple trees
I kept my distance
Fall flowers

Charles River ride

Looking south from the Eliot Bridge. Nineteen-plus miles along the Minuteman, Alewife and Charles River bike paths to Watertown Square and back. It was a beautiful day for a ride.

Mile high


I’m in Denver for a week of reporting on The Colorado Sun and the Denver media ecosystem. And the food is outstanding at Henry’s Tavern. That’s a copy of Westword, the city’s still-kicking alt-weekly, on the left.

Feeling like fall

Biked 23-plus miles along the Minuteman Bikeway, end to end, and back via the Alewife Brook Greenway. Check out the fall colors at Great Meadows. Soon it will be snowing!
