We found a place right here in East Providence to walk, around Turner's Pond, a reservoir just a few miles from home. The walk is a relative flat walk and is about three and a half miles long. and it seemed like a good walk to try. We parked in the lot on Pleasant street and set off along the wooded trail where we soon came to the dam and met up with one of Ben's classmates who was also enjoying the outdoors on Easter afternoon.

The walk was drawing to an end but we have had a great walk today even if it was short and flat, it was a good time spent in conversation and enjoying the out of doors, and the bonus that we were just a stone's throw from our door a - there are times when you have to take your adventures as they come, and even the tiny adventures are fulfilling. So we ended up just about at the point where we started except on the other side of the dam.
|Yes this is East Providence|

|Back at the dam, but on the West side now.|
We made our way to the trail end back on Pleasant street, crossed the bridge back to our parking area and checked our electronics.. Mine said the we had walked 4.5 miles. I was impressed, but then it changed it's mind and downgraded the miles to 3.5 -- this app sometimes confounds me as it can't seem to make up it's mind, and is always in conflict with Nana's app. Back at home we sat in the back yard, Nana with a healing glass of wine and me with my knife carving out another walking stick.
