NEW ENGLAND 2015: more trails


The majesties of the green lushness of the mountain, the views…




I like things of leisure because they help me to relax. Walking is something that I do every day and to be able to use walking while hiking a trail is even more amazing for me who is not athletic. I am not a climber of big rocks but I do what I can when I feel it to be right.

NEW ENGLAND 2015: Radio Relay Station at Wachusett Mountain


Radio Relay Station
US Army Corps of Engineers
This facility, equipped with an emergency generator and radio equipment, provides relay communications for 31 flood control projects.
For further information visit web page http://www.nae.usace.army.mil/
------------
Hikers all like to climb on high but then why else submit to climbing? We like to reach the summit and reach this tower where it is a look out of sort in trying to see Boston, or New Hampshire in the distance…or simply to stand around; taking a break and then off to more climbing.

-------------------------
I took this one of Ralph’s Run as it made me think of the film ‘Logan’s Run’ where those not fitting into the scheme of things are forced to run for their lives as they would be terminated. “In the year 2274, young residents enjoy an idyllic, hedonistic lifestyle within the protective confines of a domed city. The general belief is that when each person turns 30, they are reincarnated for another blissful life cycle. Those who know the much darker truth become "runners" and flee”. Anyhow, there is much truth in fiction since it is taken from the living experience.

NEW ENGLAND 2015: Trails at Wachusett Mountain

I took a long walk about yesterday and felt better for having done so. I even got lost as I had decided to stop by the library on return from my walk. I wanted to enter the library at parking lot entrance and once there I saw traffic duty policeman with construction work going on; so I walked on by and kept on going. I saw quite a bit of construction onward as I was not familiar with where I was going, I kept on until I reached the main road and circled round the other way to finding the library’s parking entrance. I went in and read the newspaper and perused some magazines and summer-seasonal cookbooks.

I returned home to my aching shoulder-arm pain that I was trying to forget about. It is much worse today and I did not take a walk. I cannot get this pain to leave me; it seems that my life is really heading for the worse. All that I to do is to cause myself harm with more hardship by the truck load, unlike n those of construction down the street.

I don’t know why that is. I insist that I wish for my pain to cease but not likely. I did speak with a chiropractor who suggested some neck exercise to try and still no improvement. I am thankful for him having returned my call.

More photos from Mount Wachusett, it is evident, that there are trails yet to be hiked.

NEW ENGLAND 2015: Trailblazing at Wachusett Mountain


We took another jaunt at Wachusett Mountain to hike and walk about and it was very nice. There were lots of cars and families hiking with children and their dogs.


We met up with one of the Mass Parks workers giving a lecture on the mysteries to be found in the woods and such. I asked her why they raised the fares for parking and such. She gave me a leaflet which explains why the fees were raised. The new fees bring Massachusetts in line with neighboring states and allow DCR to address critical staff and infrastructure needs across the state park system. Visit their website at www.mass.gov/dcr to learn more.

NEW ENGLAND 2015: Brimfield and then some

With regards to Military Items wanted…

Timelessness is not an invitation to not being or the recurrence of unpleasantness but to right an err.” ― 

My days are so futile at time since I tend to go at things solo which is why I don’t travel very far. I walked to the library today and while there I saw that they put the ‘time capsule’ display that was mentioned to me when I visited the Historical Society in Leominster. The board member who made mentioned of this had said they would also have it displayed at the library. Anyhow, I took a few pics to display here.

I falsely thought they were to do with the Historical Society when in fact they are from City Hall in Leominster, MA. My error always in all things.



-----------------------------
I wanted to end my Brimfield (http://www.brimfieldshow.com/) visit by submitting the remainder of pics that were of interest while there.

Brimfield Military Items Wanted



The Oath of Office and this antique junk yard of sort that we stopped in after having left the Brimfield strip. This place had lots of treasures. Nice to have met  you folks.

I wish that I could say that my day has been a success. It is what I make of it, I am sorry to say.

NEW ENGLAND 2015: a day at Brimfield

More views of our days’ walk antiquing…

Antiquing for me is timelessness at every turn, upon seeing the different vendors with their offerings.” ― 


Welcome to Brimfield Antiques and Collectible Shows
The antiques vendors have long folded their tents and have returned home or are attending to other shows happening year round. As promised, I am continuing by submitting more images of Brimfield as experienced by this attendee.


Shelton's Antiques 

Crystal Brooks Antiques Show
 

The Meadows Antiques



We should have gone over to view of these 'Air Plants', sorry.



Well, I am grateful that we took the drive and made our way again this year to Brimfield. I recall saying last year that I would not return here again since I tend to feel folks not wanting you around if you are not spending. They have folks follow you and mock you with their porter signage on shirts and such; they have money to spend as they are working the show, I imagine. We drove all this way to be a part of history and not to be made fun of for not having money or to be in the know. Anyhow, we had parked at St. Christopher’s Parish and it would seem the lot is empty and all is calmed in this lot.

NEW ENGLAND 2015: a day at Brimfield

A hot summer day at Brimfield…

Antiquing is for the young, the old, and the wearisome gypsies with their bags of treats.” ― 

 

Welcome to Brimfield Antiques and Collectible Shows
 
My husband and I walked about all afternoon; upon arriving we took to finding our friends from Hunt & Gather Vintage Market of Princeton, MA.
Yep, they were there as indicated in Booth 237-238 as part of the Brimfield event. We took some photos of their booth and of other surrounding vendors nearby.

Faddy’s Donuts & Ice Cream of Windsor, CT
This is another favorite vendor that we try to visit when taking a walk along the Brimfield strip. They make the best donuts, especially when freshly baked, oozing and melting in your mouth as the flavors hits the palette making one dispense more of the dough in their wallets. I like their donuts is all.

Enjoy these pics and look for more of Brimfield to come on other posts.
