**Please note my blog crashed for several days but thankfully it is up and running – you therefore may have missed the last post if you area regular follower, and may not have been able to open it in general – I am relieved that everything is back on track**


Yesterday Wilma and I Adventured to Nathaniel Allen Recreation Area (NARA Park) in Acton, Massachusetts.  NARA Park is located on a pond, and is popular for fishing, swimming, and picnicking.  The Park has an amphitheater for summer concerts.  The walking trail intersects with the Bruce Freeman Trail.

Wilma and I had a surprising Adventure to NARA Park, locating it completely by accident.  We were walking on the Bruce Freeman Trail and were traversing a part just past where we had walked before and suddenly there was NARA Park.  Such a pleasant surprise!  Upon arrival we found the beautiful NARA pond, with gorgeous reflections of the clouds shimmering on the water.  We began wandering down a trail finding children fishing.  Soon we located an area with lovely water lilies, quite entertained by the frog panic as we explored the shore.  Wilma found a log to climb, savored the smells, and was energized by the hopping frogs.  From there we headed on the boardwalk and around the path.  There were beautiful wild flowers, and numerous locations to enter the water.  We soon walked by the beach, and guests picnicking before arriving at the main building.  We met several people working at this location.  They were so friendly and we enjoyed chatting for awhile, Wilma cherishing every bit of attention and a long belly rub.  From there we continued on the path before returning to Bruce Freeman Trail.  Since we found this lovely location by chance we did not have a map, but I believe we explored the majority of this location.  It has been a long time since we found something accidentally and it is these simple days that make my day.  Such a wonderful Adventure to the lovely NARA Park (Rating:  4).
