Monday was Steve's birthday, and since we couldn't go to Schoephle Garden, as is tradition, we went to Walden Pond instead -- not a bad subsitute. Walden Pond is hardley a pond. Erin says it's a favorite place to swim and lie on the beach.
There is a trail that goes all the way around the pond. We only went about the third of the way to see the foundation of Thoreau's Cabin. Apparently it was only recently discovered.
