Off the Beaten Path

Past the mall, stores, and restaurants on busy Boston Road in Springfield, Mass is this pond. I took this picture at sunset last Saturday night, sometime after dinner and before karaoke.  I think this may be 5-Mile Pond, which is where my mother used to swim as a kid (well, pretend to swim - she always kept one foot firmly planted on the bottom).

I love that photo. To the point I'm thinking of swiping it... but I won't.

Thank you Hahn. Yes, mom was a good swimmer but she could fake it with the best of 'em.

Thank you Lesbo!

That's cool Chewy. Is it 5 Mile Pond? On Google Maps it looks like there are a couple of ponds off Boston Road.

Hey Lynt - Thanks for the compliment. And please feel free to use the photo if you wish.
