Last weekend I took a short walk around the wildlife pond at Beaver Brook Association in Hollis, NH. I parked at the area right off of Route 130. The trails are well marked and I opted to take the wildlife trail. A few folks were fishing and lots of people were taking advantage of the nice weather. I plan to measure the distance on my next visit and will update this posting to reflect that.
It is a bit early for the spring flowers such as trillium to emerge, but noticed these lily pads with a purple hue. I saw a log that was covered with resting painted turtles but I didn’t have a telephoto to capture the shot. It is a great place and I plan to visit again.
I was browsing through some photos the other day when I came across a few from 2014 taken when I visited Susan Durville in New Ipswich to see her baby goats. These little guys were so much fun to watch as they bounced around fighting for the milk. Her goats were as interested in me as I was in them, what fun.

The Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Topsfield and Wenham Massachusetts. The Rockery Trail belonged to an arboretum donated by the owner Thomas Emerson Proctor. The Sanctuary is currently managed by the Massachusetts Audubon Society who removed some of the non-native species of trees, However along the Rockery Trail I noticed some unusual trees and shrubs which managed to survive.
Good morning, I’ve reached back in the archives a bit for this photo of Sacred Heart Church in Greenville, NH. I have been inside this church many times but never noticed the statue until I took this photo in HDR. I find that photography makes me pay closer attention to details.
The proposed date for the New Hampshire Presidential Primary is February 9, 2016. One of the most popular photo-ops for many candidates (Obama and Rudy Giliani stopped in 2007) is the Peterboro Diner in Peterborough, NH.
In 2016, Rand Paul and Rick Perry made an appearance. I’m sure others were here or will be.
