May 25 — Bohn Farm, Roger’s Grove, Industrial

North of Boston, west of Gay, south of 3rd, east of Hover

Total for today 25,400 steps and 4:47 time.  My derailleur broke on my bike just as I arrived at my starting point today, so, for the first time, Jenni came and gave me a ride home from my walk.

Two new state license plates today: New Jersey and West Virginia

Today’s walk had many areas I was not familiar with, so ran into quite a few pleasant surprises.  The northeastern part is called the Bohn Farm Neighborhood, and there are parts that look like remnants of an old farm.  There is some nice sidewalk art in several areas… it looks like maybe they gave neighborhood children an opportunity to express themselves…

UPDATE — I’m adding two pictures of the electrical box on the east side of Hover just south of 3rd, that I took on 9/29/13.   I’m pretty sure this is newly painted since the time that I walked this area.

  1. Mark – the purple fireworks flower is allium, another one of my favorite spring/early summer flowers. I think it is a member of the onion family – your favorite sis, RMc

  2. What an eclectic territory you covered this day!That “scary” goose at Left Hand Brewery is one of my favorite geese from the Geese Galore art project several years ago because of it’s creative name: Robogoosinator (probably didn’t spell it right). Think “Arnold” and “movies” and you’ll see what I mean.
