Saturday at Concord

posted in: Life Updates | 0

This past Saturday, Selma and I headed out to Walden Pond again for some open water swimming practice in preparation for my next sprint triathlon. We rented this beauty and brought our steeds along so we could do some scenic riding afterwards.

Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperating with us so there was no sunbathing on the beach for Selma. We did, however, manage to bring an assortment of meats and cheeses with us for a nice picnic on the beach….in the rain.

While Selma was snacking away, I got busy putting on my wetsuit. The water here is still a bit chilly (even in mid-June) so wetsuits are still a must.

These things are so annoying to get on. Apparently if you use Pam or some cooking spray it makes the process much easier. Next time…

Blowing up my Safer Swimmer so Selma can track my progress…or lack of.

After the swim, we got our bikes and headed in to Concord for lunch.

We went to our usual place (Main Street’s Market & Cafe) and ordered up The Walden and an iced coffee.

They also had these amazing looking cupcakes and pastries but we refrained.

This was probably one of the best flat breads we’ve had in a long time. Everything tasted fresh and home made.

After lunch, we set off on our scenic bike tour of historical Concord. It mostly consisted of a lot of farms and goofing off on the bikes.

And even some cows here and there.

Concord is probably one of my favorite places to visit outside of the city. It’s a great place to bike, swim and eat delicious foods. They even have a bunch of trails for hiking and camping. If you ever get a chance to visit the northeast, I would highly recommend getting out of the city and heading over to Walden Pond for some fun times.

Stay tuned for where we went for dinner…your mind will be blown.
