Being that yesterday was the ‘longest’ day of the year, Price and I decided to go out for a walk to soak up all the sun. I suggested that we check out Hammond Pond Reservation since it was close by and it seemed large enough for us to wander around without doing loops, like the reservoir.
Another reason I suggested going there was that it could give me a chance to play around with my NEW camera. I picked up a Nikon DSLR D3100 because my point and shoot is dying and I wanted to be able to take some better pictures than what that camera offered. So thanks to my Big G bonus and a target sale I picked up my first DSLR camera!
So we wandered around the area and snapped photos here and there. This is when I noticed that I got some bleach on my pants. awesome.
I wanted to stay and take more pictures of this Mountain Laurel but we were both dumb and didn’t put on any bug spray. I felt like I was honing my cat like reflexes smacking them off my arms, legs and face.
I’m hoping to come back to the pond mid day on a weekend so see all the lilies in bloom.
Great first day of summer
