Out & About

Before we moved, Matt and I used to take almost daily walks during the week. There were a number of places near by where we could go that had paved paths complete with spectacular views and local wildlife. Now that we're "out in the sticks" as they say, there are only a handful of places to walk nearby that I'm currently aware of. We've started taking walks around the neighborhood, if not to get exercise, than at the very least to scope out the neighbor's houses and decide how to make ours that much cooler.

To break up the monotony, we took the scenic drive over to one of the lakes in our area for a jaunt across the dam. It was a beautiful day, there were plenty of people out and about and it was a nice change of scenery. I always appreciate being on the water, particularly because in my previous life I had free access to waterways of varying sorts - the Long Island sound, the lake, the Connecticut River.  

One of the really neat things about the dam is that there is a fence along the way with locks on it that people have left behind, just like the Pont de l'ArchevĂȘchĂ© in Paris. I find it oddly romantic and very beautiful, so I took a few pictures.
