Memorial Day! & East - West Trail

Memorial Day has been pleasant for being outside, be that at an observance, parade, gardening, or on a hike.

Ted has been eating his way across Maryland!

Masslive has an article on the efforts to create an East West Trail hop-scotching from park to park from Coes to Rural Cemetery and Institute Park.
