Yesterday, my daughter, 'A', and I decided to go for a long walk. For those of you familiar with the area (or will take the time to Google) , we headed out our street and straight across Main street on to High Street. Just past the purple house (eww), I stopped to take a picture of a pretty garden.Yeah, it looked good against the backdrop of the ewwwy purple house. Once we got to 'our' church, we cut through Harvey Park. 'A' thought we'd head up Broadway, but I had other ideas. We trudged uphill, dodging tourists on Main Street and when we reached Union Lane I told 'A' I had a cemetery I wanted to take a look at. Union Cemetery is a pretty spot sitting on the east side of Mill Pond. Mostly old, very old, graves. A neighbor was out weeding her garden and looked at us suspiciously. After I took some photos and read some headstones, we headed to Five Corners and hung a right on to Railroad Avenue. 'A' needed a stop at the IGA. After that we headed up Poole's Lane to Upper Main Street and back to our lane. It's been a while since we've done such a long (and brisk for the most part) walk. We were tired when we got home!
