A few pics from Boxford not Georgetown

Paul, Gail and Joan at the Boxford Community Store
High humidity and the threat of showers curtailed our plans to head to Georgetown last weekend -- postponing our venture to Theo's to another day. Instead, we chose a shorter ride to Boxford, and breakfast at the Boxford Community Store. Gail, Paul, Joan and Tam met at the Beverly Airport for an easy spin down the Wenham Trail/Topsfield Linear Common, surrounded on both sides by late-summer wildflowers. The skies were gray, and an occasional sprinkle here and there was a reminder that showers were threatening, but it never really turned into anything.

We heard from Donna after breakfast, as we were getting ready to return to Beverly, and texted her a selfie in response. (Congrats again, PMC riders!) Taking the trail home, we continued on the Danvers portion of the trail to avoid the 97 hill, finishing our ride at 18.5 miles. A nice morning!

Cheers from Boxford!
