Where to Kayak MetroWest Boston part 2 Looking for places to kayak in MetroWest?    This is part 2 of a hopefully never ending series, so check back often! This day we decided again to check out one of our favorite paddling spots and got so caught up in it that we travelled a bit farther than usual.  The Charles River is approximately 80 miles long.   It meanders through towns along metro west beginning in Hopkinton and emptying out in Boston.    There are many places along the Charles to explore.    West St/Dover Road, Medfield/Millis line. If you are at the bridge on West Street / Dover Road you can see a parking spot on the upstream side of the river.  You can put in here and the parking is free.    Kayaking bud and sister Nancy Carroll and I decided to take a trip through the marshy...

Learn Animal Tracking Rocky Woods Reservation Medfield MA This is one event you don't want to miss! For me, the Trustees of the Reservation is a big deal.   Not only do they provide fun and interesting places to go to enjoy nature in and around the Medfield MA area but they preserve, educate and offer opportunity to explore nature and the past.   Most of you know how much I enjoy the outdoors, especially paddling the Charles River watching the wildlife that live there, admiring the plants and trees as they change throughout the seasons.    I owe a lot of that to the Trustees of the Reservation.   So it comes as no surprise to me that the Trustees have some really fun events planned for this winter in the Medfield area.    One of these is Winter Tracking at Rocky Woods!   On January 14th...

18 Miles Southwest of Boston Inner Peace Harmony and a Little Chi I woke up this morning, Monday December 5th to a weather report that is almost unbelievable in New England for this time of year.   I have a lot to do.   The opportunity that presents itself today is just to much to ignore.    The weather is too ridiculous to ignore, the water is cold, but so what? The outside temp might reach 60, the water temp is still very cold.  The last thing I want to do is end up in the drink!     I grab the very stable Dirigo Old Town (named Cloud, of course) out of the garage and load it into the car and head down to one of my favorite paddling spots.     At West Street in Medfield MA, there is an easy spot to put in.   I don my PFD, bright red.   See and be seen is the motto.  ( Oh, just like re...

Attention: Veterans! Do you know you can Buy a House with No Money Down? by: Marie Zorn I had the honor to sell a house to a Veteran today! I have never seen anyone so happy in my life! And one of the nicest couples I’ve had the pleasure to work for. It was my first time I have worked with a Veteran to buy a home. It is a wonderful opportunity if you are a Veteran and have a job. The program is very simple. You can buy a house with NO MONEY DOWN and fantastic interest rates. However, at the offer stage you do have to come up with $500.00 to bind the offer and a minimum of a negoiated amount of let’s say $1,000.00 at Purchase and Sale, BUT, it is all re-imbursed at closing in full!!! That is a deal! Unheard of in this market! The program also directs the seller to pay for the Pest inspec...

73 Adams Street Medfield MA Sold The moving trucks are leaving the driveway tonight as the new owners of 73 Adams Street Medfield MA are getting ready to spend the first night in their new home!    I met this beautiful family at an open house I had held at another home in Medfield.   They called me to help them with their purchase of their new  home. Together, we developed a strategy that we thought was sound and would be effective.   It was.    I am excited for this family as I believe they have selected and secured the right home for them.   An updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath ranch with an attached step down family room, two fireplaces and hardwood floors will hopefully be the scene of many new and fabulous memories to come!       The kids will have fun on the swing set and sandbox while th...
