Thanks to the USA's celebration of Veterans, I did not have to work today. Not being compelled to sit in my office on a Monday is worthy of its own Gratitude post, but I decided to celebrate the Mystic River instead (sorry, Monday! Maybe next time.).
B and I often drive by this intriguing three-story wooden structure built on the banks of the Mystic River. We kept saying we needed to do some investigation (especially since I've been driving by this thing for six years now!), but we never got around to it. It was absolutely gorgeous outside, so B had the brilliant idea of remedying this gross error. Amazing idea, B! It was rad.
Turns out it is part of Torbert MacDonald Park... a huge and absolutely gorgeous park on the banks of the Mystic River. You cannot tell from the road how huge this park is... and even cooler: it used to be totally wrecked due to the construction of I-93. It was reclaimed and made super luscious! How lucky we are to live so close. Enjoy the bonus inclusion of photos documenting our adventure!
