In someone's front yard in Gill, Massachusetts
Sara, without kids
My mother watched my kids all day, and my job allows me to make my own hours, so I took advantage of the beautiful weather and the hashpoint which was only a few km from the highway.
 The hashpoint, in Gill, MA
I drove up to Gill, MA and found convenient parking at a farmstand right across the street from the hashpoint. I figured I had better go buy something since I had parked there, so I went in and discovered that they had local grass-fed beef. This made my day, because I try to use local grass-fed beef instead of factory beef, and I can buy the beef in Springfield only during the months when the farmer's market operates, and we had run out.
I asked the proprietor whether he knew the people across the street and whether he thought they'd mind if I walked around in their yard a little, and he said he didn't think Nancy was home, and therefore she wouldn't mind.
So I crossed the street, found the hashpoint, and marked it with a snowball, which I forgot to photograph. I hadn't expected to find any snow, because at home all our snow melted weeks ago.
 Very Near the Hashpoint
 Turners Falls, MA
On the way back, I visited Turners Falls, Massachusetts, a cute little town 8 km from the hashpoint
