7/16/16 Little Long Pond

Heat continues so we decided to head for the coast where it's a few degrees cooler. 70's when we started but felt warmer because it was very humid. Back home it reached 88 degrees but we had watermelon to share

The pond

Start of West Side Trail in the woods.

Blueberries are starting to ripen

 and water lilies to bloom

Last time in at end of hike.

Kelley did well but she has seemed lamer last few days so I chose a shorter loop. It took us longer than usual ( 2 hours) because on the carriage road side we met lots of nice people and their dogs which involved a fair amount of chatting. Supposed to rain tomorrow so she will have an easy day. 


  1. That pink water lily is gorgeous!
    Glad you two had a fun outing with lots of chitchat. That's nice once in awhile.
    Cool, drizzly rain today. Nice break from the heat and bugs.

    1. Thanks Sue, We had the same weather yesterday and it was good for garden work

  2. Your blueberry and water lily photos are beautiful.

  3. Kelley Girl could be considered a water lily too. After all she is a precious flower and I so enjoy seeing her have fun in the water..blueberries already..egads where is the summer going?

    1. Thanks penbayman - I was surprised by the blueberries too- everything else seems to be behind

  4. Beautiful pond lily! And love how you captured the blueness of the water.

    1. Thanks for your comments Linda
