Bedford has a "one book, one Bedford" program, and this year the book was "The Orchard" by Adele Crockett Robertson. This is a memoir of Adele's attempts to save the family house and orchard during the depression. We both enjoyed the book and decided to see the house. Ben mapped out a route from Stiles Pond in Boxford. While the route looked like 33 miles on Google maps, it ended up being nearly 40. But the weather was beautiful most of the way (we had threatening skies, but no rain, for the last hour or so), and we had a nice fish & rings lunch in Ipswich. And, of course, we saw the house.
