July 10, 2020 – Pepperell Covered Bridge – Massachusetts

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Pepperell Covered Bridge in Pepperell, Massachusetts.  The Pepperell Covered Bridge traverses the Nashua River.  It was originally built in 1818 but has been rebuilt three times, most recently in 2010.  The Bridge has access for vehicles, and pedestrians.

We had a local Adventure to the Pepperell Covered Bridge.  I had been there once before with Shadow and Buster but do not believe I took any photographs.  We found the small parking area indicated for the Nashua River Access Area, and parked near the bridge.  There was a small walkway with some information kiosks and memorials.  We visited these features before trotting over to the bridge.  The bridge was somewhat dull in color, as was the hazy sky.  I posed Wilma, who smiled grandly before heading over the pedestrian walkway.  Wilma was obsessed with looking out the bridge, down the stream, very focused and curious.  I am guessing she was able to see, or smell the nearby farm animals.  We walked through the bridge and to the other side.  There was a loose dog running around so we just snapped one quick photograph before heading back.

After exploring the Pepperell Covered Bridge from above we headed over to a short and steep trail down to the side of the Bridge to see the side.  Seeing the simple front, I was surprised to find a more scenic bridge, with lattice-like style.  Wilma enjoyed a couple sips from the water before we headed back to the car.  I was quite disappointed to see a great amount of glass on this path, but was grateful that we did not have any incidents.

So glad we could Adventure to the Pepperell Covered Bridge today (Rating:  3.5).

Throwback Adventure- Groton Dog Park – Massachusetts

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

We have been to the Groton Dog Park numerous times with Shadow, Buster, Wilma, and My Mom. The Groton Dog Park is actually not a dog park, but is a popular spot for dog lovers located in Groton, Massachusetts. The trails parallel the Nashua River and also run throughout the woods. I am guessing this Park is part of the conservation land, but it is not clearly indicated.

The Groton Dog Park is an absolutely beautiful location full of dog fun, and the gorgeous outdoors. Dogs are able to run free, play, swim, and roll, as they please. We enjoy walking throughout the Park and sitting along the River’s edge, the boats peacefully gliding by. My memories of this park are special, full of relaxation, and fun times. Two of my favorite photographs of Shadow and Buster have come at this location, at least one compliments of my Mom (thanks Mom 🙂 ). Definitely a dog’s paradise. We used to frequent this location often, and likely will plan a visit in the future (Rating: 4).
