At work on Friday, I overheard a coworker recommended a pond in Massasoit State Park for canoing, and I determined to try it. Saturday, November 3rd turned out to be unseasonably warm, so I grabbed the opportunity. I and my middle son spent about an hour-and-a-
half on the water. Lake Rico, less than a mile long and irregular in shape, is a beautiful place, and the fall colors made it more so.
The sky alone was the worth the price of admission.
