Wednesday Walk at the Acushnet Sawmill

Wednesday Walk at the Acushnet Sawmill

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

Following me and re-Hiving the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk.

Acushnet Sawmill Walk

This walk was on last friday, I decided this week to try and share a recent walk, as its been a while.
Last Friday was a good day for walking, this was one of three walks that day, an early walk out to catch the sunrise, then, a walk downtown, also snapping photos, and then I went to walk around here in Late morning and got a few shots I will share in this post, and then in the afternoon I mowed the front lawns at home, so I got over 10K steps that day, but I will admit i did feel it the next morning.

This spot is called the Acushnet Sawmill , as it is a a 19-acre former industrial lumber yard on the Acushnet River, I love walking there some nice trails and a couple of spots with a view over the water, such as this one

I sometimes walk around the trails a bit but often I hget stuck at two points looking over the water and breathing the fresh air and relaxing, which is what I did this day

and another spot I stop by often with the recent rains there was a lot of water flowing, I believe this is a herring run, but haven't seen fish running there yet.

As you can see I stopped at a couple of spots and took some details hots such as the second photo and this next one, which looks OK in color but I think looked better in Mono
