A day in a Monet

The mountains aren’t the only place to find beauty and solitude. Just got back from a paddle up and down the Ipswich River, five hours spent almost totally alone, save for a camera-shy great blue heron, several sunbathing turtles and countless pairs of randy dragonflies.

I’ve barely 15 minutes from the Ipswich River for 17 of the last 20 years, and this is the first time I’ve made it on the water. After spending most of the day feeling as if I were in the center of a Monet masterpiece, I know now that I waited too long.
