Sherry and I had great plans to impress the boys with a BREAKFAST in a hardware store in Monson. We had coffee at home and drove to Monson, had a great trip. I never understand words once the car is going , but the boys and their mom had a great time.
In Monsoon, the hardware is closed! Then we tied Shaw’s Hostel, the cook said they probably didn’t have enough for 4 breakfasts, sent us to a filling station where we bought breakfast sandwiches, then off to the trail.
Mark and I donned our packs and we walked in on the trail after passing this warning:
(That is Mark going ahead of Sherry thru a Bog)
Of course we were going only a mile or so. e walked about 2.5 miles totaled. Mark found he needed to adjust his shoes, he was trying to get a blister. It was a great day for a hike.
(Couple beautiful ponds on the short trip)
After the hike, we let the boys drive. They had a ball. Turned around a couple times to go back and check out things. Once to see if a Meat house had Moose jerky! No, so Jack bought some beef jerky anyway.
Then they wanted their pictures beside this sign.
Then they stopped at an old grave yard. Like Paula, we find this interesting. Looking at names and dates.
There were a lot of war heroes here from several wars, even the Civil war. I read it and read it, and still did not understand it. Other than he was wounded in the lung in the last battle.
There was this one, Born 1787 died 1844.
Then something interesting to me, a fast shot of a tractor grave yard.
Driving thru Maine I am always amazed at the huge old houses. I shot this one on the run, you cannot see the big barn behind it, but together they are huge.
Our neighbors said the Tall ships were down in Camden. then Jack said, ‘Hey that is close to Owls Head, the antique motorcycles and planes are there also. So we might head that way in a few.
Thanks for going with us.
One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.
