A SWAN LAKE IN AUTUMN

No one could have been happier than me last Sunday afternoon when we went to a park for our family’s usual Sunday walk.  I spied a rather big pond while we were looking for a parking slot.  As soon as I could, I begged my leave to go to the pond (with my toddler inContinue reading “A SWAN LAKE IN AUTUMN”

DREAMY AUTUMN POND (for WPC: Dreamy)

One of my favorite places near our home is the nearby pond. There, I see geese, swans, and gulls playing in the water.

Last year was a good timeContinue reading “DREAMY AUTUMN POND (for WPC: Dreamy)”

SUNDAY POST: (SWAN LAKE IN THE ) CITY

To respond to Jake’s challenge this week, CITY, I decided to go on a walking tour of my little New England City fondly nicknamed The Silver City. A hundred or so years ago, Taunton, as it is called, was the home of factories that produced fine silver goods. These factories included Reed & Barton, PooleContinue reading “SUNDAY POST: (SWAN LAKE IN THE ) CITY”
