Three Photos


Joe and I took advantage of this past Saturday’s summer-like weather and spent part of the day on Singing Beach. The water was warm enough for swimming, but mostly we ate and dozed. On our walk back to the motorcycle, I took the above photo looking out toward Manchester by the Sea’s harbor. It was low tide.


On Sunday, we took a late afternoon walk in the Blue Hills with our housemate G. We hadn’t been in a while, and we decided to hike up to Hancock Hill, which we did a couple of months ago. It offers what is arguably the area’s most spectacular view of Boston (apart from maybe the view from the Longfellow Bridge across the Charles River). We hiked straight up, which was challenging, but there is a more meandering route.

Fortunately, I have only a handful of local readers, so I doubt Hancock Hill is going to be inundated by visitors. I’ve posted about the Blue Hills before, and it still remains one of the area’s best kept secrets. I guess the outdoors isn’t for everyone, which is just fine with me. The above photo (click on it to enlarge) is looking north toward the city, while the photo below is looking west (obviously) toward the setting sun.

The Singing Beach offers lovely sand, plus impressive rocky outcroppings that are great for both climbing and privacy, and a cobalt blue ocean.
