Chris & I took the day off and went hiking up Great Blue Hill. It was a beautiful day. Sunny, about 88 degrees. The blueberries were ripe and we met a couple of deer on the trail.
That’s the old kite shed in the picture. About a hundred years ago, they used to fly a giant kite carrying weather instruments from the top of the hill.
Here’s a picture of the observatory itself. It’s still operating.
We ran into several groups of kids at Eliot tower, but most of the trails were pretty quiet today.
