Turner Pond in Walpole, Mass. is not some famous vacation destination. Rather, it is a low-key, 17-acre community pond best known, locally, for its supervised winter ice skating and cozy lodge -- the latter where locals gather as neighbors to enjoy some good conversation and picture window views of the beautiful pond.  It's not uncommon to see people bring in food to share in the lodge during the ice skating season. The stone fireplace adds ambiance and the television some entertainment for those wanting to watch a favorite show. All in all, it's a classic community setting and a great way of bringing people together. Here's hoping that the lodge returns to that community glory in a post pandemic world.  Nice, though, that the winter ice skating flourished in the winter of 2021 with its socially distant-friendly setting!

During off hours -- like sunrise -- Turner Pond can take on a personality that rivals the best of New England scenery. Depending on the exact time of the day and weather conditions, Turner Pond becomes a setting for brilliant sunrises that provide scenic inspiration and as a fabulous way to instantly refresh and regenerate on a new day.

The moral of the story: It's worth waking up early to see a beautiful sunrise, which, by the way, are not relegated to vacation areas!

OK, that was pretty cool but where to now?  How about...
