We went and visited Waldon Pond- where Henry Thoreau lived from July 1845 to September 1847. His experience at Walden provided the material for the book Walden. This is a place I've always wanted to go, but never had the opportunity. It was a snowy, but warm day, so we enjoyed the short walk around the pond.
Here's Brian meeting Thoreau...not a very tall man...
Waldon Pond turned out to not be very big at all...here's a photo of the pond in its entirity.
We also stopped at a little park where lots of kids were sledding. Brian and Jeff decided to check out the slides. There was a heated race...
but Brian seemed to have too much friction to become grand champion.
Maybe next time.
Visiting with Jeff and Laura's cats- Bean and Brie is always fun too. They seemed to (more or less) accept the fact that Brian and I were staying at their house. Before too long there will be a little Bicklet around, so having houseguests around is probably good practice.
Can't wait to meet the new addition!!!
