It went down sort of like this. During a spare moment at the dojo, Cat said something like, “Before the summer’s over, I really want to swim at Walden Pond.” Diane sighed, “Oh! That sounds good. I want to go, too.” At that point, Beth made it happen. Last Friday, nine of us and three kayaks (thanks to Tanya and Kate) had a delightful afternoon swimming laps across the famous pond, paddling around, taking in the serene scenery and enjoying each others’ company. It was a sweet, summer afternoon.
