Main beach at Walden Pond, Concord Massachusetts.
Walden Pond is arguably the very best place for water swim lovers.
Water is clean as could be. The beaches are never too crowded because
limitations of parking lot and difficulties to come there otherwise
than car. We ride there 15 miles one direction for one and half hours.
It is manageable and even fun but even for bike and pedestrians
the car lot close time is enforced, no walk in. It is unreasonable
to my mind, sort of cruel.
But this nuisance is compensated a lot by quality of the rest
at beach. And you can learn now time of reopening at twitter not to waste time.

with decade periodicity following Sun activity cycle. This shot
was at maximum water capacity time.

People can wait before beach will reopen due to full of parking
