Linus: Week 61

Linus: Week 61

It’s been a tough week for us, and you can see a bit of it on Linus’s face here. I see this look and think, “Get that camera outta my face!” But maybe I’m reading too much into it. It…

Linus - Week 8

Linus – Week 8

I can’t believe how quickly eight weeks went by. As I write this post, I’ve returned to work and miss Linus terribly during the day. But let’s not think about that; there are adorable photos of an adorable baby to…

Hike at Weir Hill

Hike at Weir Hill

We’re venturing farther and farther from home on our little weekend hikes, working up to maybe trekking up to the White Mountains in a few weeks. Starting to figure out how to help Linus stay comfortable through the hike. “Tanking…

Hamlin Reservation

Hamlin Reservation

I do love a long weekend. We hosted a little party for the Fourth, which naturally took up the whole day (preparation, then party). Saturday I had to rest after such a full day. And then I was so happy…

World's End

World’s End

We’ve been to World’s End quite a few times, but on this visit decided to take a loop we usually skip. It was a nice surprise. The weather was unseasonably warm on Saturday, and extremely humid. Later it rained and…

Long Hill Reservation

Long Hill Reservation

We were here last year, but that was September, and we wanted to see what it looked like in the Spring. It was a day of scattered showers, and it turned out to be very good that we were wearing…

Rocky Woods

Rocky Woods

Another weekend, another property down in the Trustees Challenge. This time we headed down to Medfield and Rocky Woods. It’s a surprisingly big property given its location smack in the middle of a town. Yen is still getting to know…

Tully Lake

Tully Lake

I’m not ashamed to admit it: Saturday night I slept 13 hours. I went to bed at 9pm and woke up at 10:30am, confused beyond all belief. I had a shower, dressed, and sheepishly headed downstairs, to where Yen had…

Weir Hill and Bánh Xèo

Weir Hill and Bánh Xèo

What I didn’t mention in the previous post is what we did after we finished our outings: we ate bánh cuốn. This is one of Yen’s favorite dishes (he has a lot of “favorites” generally depending on what’s in front…

Long Hill

Long Hill

Saturday was a really beautiful day: blue sky, a little breeze, and temperature in the low 70s. We got up early, drove over to Arlington to pick up Yen’s mom, and headed to for the dunes walk at Crane Beach….

Wedding

Wedding

I’ve been waiting an awfully long time to write this post, and not just because Yen took a very long time to download the photos (he has a good excuse, as our wedding was followed by a home purchase, a…

Low-Key Weekend

Low-Key Weekend

We stayed close to home this weekend – sorry about that. We had some social obligations and the weather turned a little colder than it’s been. And with the hurricane knocking down so many trees, we just didn’t feel like…

Bartholomew's Cobble and Bash Bish

Bartholomew’s Cobble and Bash Bish

This weekend’s trip was to the Berkshires. We started with Bartholomew’s Cobble, a place we’ve both been wanting to cross off the list for a while. It’s definitely out of the way if you’re driving from the Boston area, and…

The Trails at Crane Beach

The Trails at Crane Beach

How many times have I been to Crane Beach? Twenty? That’s definitely not an exaggeration – maybe even more. With one exception, I’ve always just made a beeline for the beach and roamed around, having a lovely time. The exception…

Rafe's Chasm and Coolidge Reservation

Rafe’s Chasm and Coolidge Reservation

Sunday after we completely annihilated the 5k, we felt like we needed a leisurely ramble somewhere, preferably near the ocean. I looked for green spaces we’d never been to before, and Rafe’s Chasm looked like a good choice. Off we…
