Walden Pond

It was a muggy weekend in Boston, with temperatures in the nineties on Saturday. Chris and I biked ten miles to and from Walden Pond (as in Henry David Thoreau). During peak hours in the summer, park staff monitor the number of visitors at the pond's small beach and block the main access to newcomers until the beach empties somewhat. Chris and I avoided the possible hindrance by biking to an unblocked back entrance and found a secluded area opposite the beach. The cool, clear water felt incredible after we had biked for so long - much more refreshing than salty, ocean waves.

We also watched the new Batman movie at the tiny Belmont theater - it was great. I definitely recommend it.
