Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
There’s something about fall, especially in New England. The hot sun and fresh crisp air is invigorating. And what better place to spend such a seasonable fall day than Robinson Park in Agawam, MA?
Going to Robinson Park on Thanksgiving has become a tradition for me. Since it is so close to my relatives and it is such a big park with so much to photograph, it’s a wonderful place for me to take my camera and get close to nature. It’s also a great way to work up an appetite for the big feast later.
If there’s one word I would use to describe Robinson Park it would be peaceful. Especially today when many of us are reflecting on what we’re thankful for and spending some quality down time with loved ones. Walking around and the park I felt as though I was the only there, partly because I probably was. At least I didn’t see anyone during most of my time there
Except for the occasional dog walker, cyclist or fishing enthusiast, it was pretty quiet at Robinson Park today.
There was a lot of bird and chipmunk activity as they get ready for winter.
There was also a sign of more life to come at the park.
It’s rare to not see someone walking their dog at Robinson Park and today was no exception. With it’s wide trails, plentiful bushes and trees and numerous side trails, it is a great place to take your pooch.
