Lunch at The Pond

Last year during our first summer in Concord, I wondered... where are all of the pools?   

Surely on these hot summer days everyone flocks to a pool, right?  I searched online, looked all around town... I couldn't find a public pool anywhere.

Then a friend mentions that they were finally accepted into a pond this year after a couple of years on the wait-list. 

A pond?  A private pond?

It was so lovely.  I think this is something that all country towns should have - it was so peaceful and beautiful.


  1. So much more charming than a pool. How great!

  2. That is just too funny!! Never would have thought you had to be accepted into a pond...oh my...a far cry from life in the south here. Very charming, but I would still love a pool. So where are the pools??

    1. The Thoreau Club offers a private pool and workout area. There are very few country club-like areas around here that offer the full club atmosphere.

  3. I've never heard of such a thing! We don't have any public pools{nor ponds} around us here in Connecticut so we joined the Beach Club. It's nice, clean and not far from our home.

    Happy summer!

    Jenny - Is this Walden Pond or the one in Lincoln? I remember going to the one in Lincoln when I was a kid but I can't remember the name of it. Lincoln also had a pool at the elementary school.

    Reminds me of the summers in Bellevue WA at Clyde Beach...

  6. Ah! Can't wait to show Ada these pics when she wakes up! We just spent the morning there today, thank goodness on such a HOT day!

  7. Simple summer pleasures.
    I so took for granted my early years living on the shores of Lake Michigan. Your pond looks like a lovely family-friendly alternative.

  8. hi jenny ~ popping in to say we had your white cheddar biscuits with dinner and they were a big {HUGE} hit with my boys. i gobbled down a couple too before they were all gone! I love your pond! when we go to the cape by boys prefer the ponds over the beach. not me, but i think they like the calm waters and the absence of salt. it must be j a massachusetts thing! so fun!
