Duck Race

The Kiwanis Club of Danvers held the 17th annual Rubber Duck Race on Saturday, Sept. 25, at Pope’s Landing on the Porter River. Proceeds go toward college scholarships. I  adopt  duck # 554 for $5.  My friend Julia and I went to watch this fun race. Unfortunately my duck did not win but it was and exciting race.

Independence Greenway - Peabody Ma

       This week, I started riding my bike again. 
I rode on Wednesday and Friday on the new Independence Greenway Rail Trail in West Peabody, MA
Rode 6 miles on Wed and 6.6 miles on Friday.
I love riding in the cooler weather and this trail is is only about 7 minutes by car from my house,
and perfect length for a nice work out.  As I ride, I meet up with other riders and walkers.

Red House on the Farm - Amherst Ma

I drove out to UMass in Amherst today. I had to deliver some things to my son, Scott - some books that he needed for school, some clothes that he left behind at home and his new glasses (and by the way, the new glasses look awesome on him...they are frameless and show more of his face...i like them...he does too)

I took Scott and Mary (his girlfriend) out to lunch at Bertuccis then we went to the campus store so I could buy a maroon Umass hooded sweat shirt.  Then I dropped the kids off at their Anime Marathon.  It was nice to see Scott and Mary and visit with them a bit. They are doing really well.  And btw...Sept 10th they had their 7 year anniversary of dating each am so happy for them both, that they have found each other.

After I dropped them off, I drove around a bit and found some cool farm lands in Amherst. Would love to spend a weekend in the Amherst area in the fall when the leaves are changing...awesome photo opportunities.
