Pratt's Brook Park - A Gem in Yarmouth

Pratt's Brook Park - A Gem in Yarmouth

 

Last week, my team of canine hikers scouted out yet another fantastic locale for woods walking, stream swimming and generalized off-leash adventure!  They give “two paws way UP” to Pratt’s Brook Park in Yarmouth!

 

Located off North Road as you head away from Route One towards Cumberland, this 220-acre tract of preserved land offers over seven miles of walking trails.  The routes are well-marked and there are trail maps and a kiosk with information at the trail head.  The parking area is located well off the main road and has plenty of parking for up to 30 cars.  On the Friday afternoon that we enjoyed the park, we were the only car in the lot.

The Second-Place Pirates

As part of my first anniversary blog spruce-up, I added categories, which you can see to the right of the screen.

Movies: "Transformers: Dark of the Moon"

Movies:  "Transformers: Dark of the Moon"

 

“Transformers: Dark of the Moon” is a tender love story involving young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and his statuesque girlfriend Carly (British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, replacing Megan Fox in the series because Fox injudiciously compared director Michael Bay to Adolf Hitler).  Poor Sam has trouble finding work in Washington, even though he saved the world in two previous “Transformers” installments, and his hyper-critical parents are coming to visit.

 

Oh, wait, there are some giant robots involved as well.  The Autobots are the good ones, the Decepticons not so much.

 

Phillies Have Three Best Pitchers in NL

When the Phillies signed Cliff Lee this offseason, adding him to a rotation that already included defending Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay, 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels, and one of the best pitchers of the past decade in Roy Oswalt, comparisons to the best rotations in memory- the early ’70s Orioles and mid-’90s Braves- started popping up all over the blogopshere.
