The first stop of the day was at Stanley Park in Westfield Ma. This is one of the nicest parks in Western Mass. It was a warm day with a slight breeze so we were able to take a good long walk around the grounds and enjoy the sights. We saw most all of the gardens and considered ourselves lucky because visiting a garden is always about timing. The rose garden area with all the different daylilies was just perfect. They are all gearing up and blooming. It was very enjoyable.
After, we sat down at the picnic tables and enjoyed our lunch. Turkey sandwiches that were tasty, but I did have to mention to Helene that with all the walking we did today, I had hoped it was going to be the size of a deli sandwich.
There is a passage from Norman McClean’s novel, A River Runs Through It, that I have never forgotten, ‘I’m haunted by waters.' The day I read those words, I fully understood the meaning and what those places do for me.
I will be back on the road to my normal schedule tomorrow; I think its VT and NH. I hope you all had a great weekend as well.
