Today's 3.6 mile walk in Mid Beacon Hill held a few surprises. Maple Wood Playfield was much larger than I had imagined and looked beautiful on this fall afternoon. Young soccer players were arriving for a game as my husband and I passed by. The scene would have been perfect were it not for the noise from the cars on I-5 and the planes overhead.
Houses in this quiet area are modest and most are well-kept.
