Walking the Dog – Chapter 2 – The Spillway

Continuing my saga from yesterday, Hinckley Reservation contains a reservoir named amazingly enough Hinckley Lake. Naturally (or un-naturally) at one end of the reservoir is a dam with a spillway. At the base of the spillway is a small swimming area, and beyond that is a shallow stream. Together these areas are called (wait for it…) Spillway Pool Picnic area. I’m not making this up, here is the park map. In the summertime, this is a very popular picnic spot, but it is deserted this time of the year.

Well, not totally deserted. We were there.

My dog, Spike, loves walking in the water. As promised, here she is, sloshing through the water with my daughter, looking much happier than in yesterday’s photo.

When I am not hiking, I make beads. So does my daughter, but not the dog. Check them out at Etsy or my Spawn of Flame website.
