We change clocks next weekend! YIPPEE!! Really, nine days to Daylight Saving Time
Super Tuesday is next week, 3/3, and Massachusetts is a Super Tuesday state. So, if you’re a party person, or feel you have a stake in who is going to face off against each other in the presidential election in November, get out and vote. See page 3.
We went on a little excursion this week.
I heard about a wheelchair accessible boardwalk that goes 1800 feet into the woods and to a marsh and out the other end to a great view of a cove. Just my kind of thing. See page 12 for a description of the Osprey Marsh Universally Acessible Boardwalk and Pathway.
What a great little spot. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to hike, but can’t really HIKE, if you know what I mean. It’s a leisurely walk on even surfaces all the way to a great spot at the end for bird watching or just sitting and contemplating the universe.
The older I get, the more I appreciate a trail that does not require climbing rocks like a ladder. Ah, yes, the days of climbing Mt. Washington are gone, I’m afraid. But getting into the woods around here is easy. There are so many great trails. But if you’re confined to a wheelchair, or you don’t have as many choices.
I hope people will take advantage of this one, and maybe agitate a little to get a few more around here.
We have our wonderful bike path in Fairhaven, of course. And it is being extended in Mattapoisett. That will be a future excursion.
Oh, and you’ll meet Charlie on page 12, too, my new little sidekick and roommate. You’ll be seeing more of him as we go on our little trips. He loves a good hike, and a good run on the beach. I inherited the little nipper when my sister Chris died last year, and he’s settled in quite comfortably in my humble abode.
