I have decided to return to posting new “Throwback Adventures” after taking time to re-post some of my favorites with Shadow. This has been a therapeutic process for me to share. We are devastated that both Shadow and Buster have both passed, but find peace knowing we can continue to remember them through our “Throwback Adventures”. They were amazing boys and are forever in our hearts.
In August 2017 Shadow, Wilma and I Adventured to the Kennedy Pond Loop Trail in Westford, Massachusetts. The Kennedy Pond Loop Trail is a portion of the Nashoba Brook Watershed which is part of the Westford Conservation Land. The Trail is approximately 1.6 miles and loops around Kennedy Pond. It is popular for walking, running, and horseback riding.
We had a peaceful Adventure to the Kennedy Pond Loop Trail. We parked in a small gravel lot in a neighborhood, definitely a location that would be hard to find without planning. Our walk began down a small trail that was a bit overgrown and dull. It did not take us long to arrive at Kennedy Pond, a beautiful little Pond. Shadow quickly headed into the water and enjoyed endless swimming on this Adventure. We traversed the Trail around the Pond and stopped at every little spot with an opening. I recall being quite disappointed by the excessive horse poop. This might have just become one of our favorite secret spots if that was not the case. However I still have fond memories of the Kennedy Pond Loop Trail. We sure do miss our water obsessed Shadow (Throwback Adventures will not always be rated).
