6/25/13 Little Long Pond
It's been quite hot and continues so- forecast for 90 today and rain. Decided to do some water oriented hikes for Kelley. We did the pond hike a little differently so as to have both sides of it. Near the start we met three nice people and their dogs so we chatted as the dogs were in and out of the water. We did not see as many dogs as expected but met some nice people on our journey around the pond. I didn't take many pictures as I was talking too much.
Lots of water lilies but, as yet, only a few blossoms
After we did the loop ( 2 hours) we drove a little further on Rte. 3 with the intention of doing the Hunters Brook Trail which closely follows the stream and is another of Kelley's favorites. Kelley did not want to get out of the car- highly unusual for her but I accepted her decision and we headed home. We did not get the rain until early evening- thunder storms which make Kelley very afraid.
