Nostalgia and new things October 22, 2010

There are things (a lot of them) that we miss about California.  One of them is that the Dish was just a 10 minute walk from our house (and then another hour to actually walk it!)

It’s hard to beat this:


But there are new things here that are pretty neat, too.  Just down the street from our house (a five minute walk) is Fresh Pond.  Pond is the word they use to mean “lake” here in Boston.  There’s a running trail around it, and it’s a pretty great place to be – especially in the fall:

To state the obvious, Fresh Pond isn’t in the foothills/mountains. But it has more trees (=more color in the fall), and the lake is beautiful. And, it’s easier to run, since there’s no elevation gain!

Doesn’t mean we don’t still love the Dish…but there’s now a special place in our hearts for Fresh Pond, too.
