We had a pretty busy day today. We drove up to New Hampshire to visit Dorothy’s cousin, Abba. She graduated from school last spring and has decided to stay in the area. We had a nice lunch and visited her apartment and studio. Thanks, Abba, for putting up with us. we really enjoyed it.
A busy day, but not without some relaxation thrown in. We enjoyed a visit to another cemetery, this one not as old but much larger than the one in Rockport that we saw yesterday. We also had time for a leisurely walk.
Back in Wenham, on the Gordon campus, Cathy and I had a bit of time before Dorothy was going to be ready to go out to dinner. We walked around the two ponds nearest to the campus buildings. First we walked around Gull Pond, which is the “swimming” pond (and there was a man swimming, in fact). We still had time so we walked around the larger Coy pond, which has marshy banks. The first picture here is from near Lane Student Center. Coy pond is quite beautiful, especially now as the leaves are beginning to turn. It has lilies growing throughout most of it.
The second photo is from near the northeast corner of the pond, looking back towards the building of the campus. It may not be the prettiest campus in the world but it’s certainly quite lovely. We enjoyed our walk and capped off the evening with Nick’s Roast Beef with Dorothy, along with two hometown friends, Porter and Hannah.
