“For the right understanding of a landscape, information must come………..

………to the intelligence from all the senses.  Looking, singing, resting, breathing, are all complementary to walking.”    In Praise of Walking by Thomas A. Clarke

As a child, I spent many summer holidays in Traytown and fell in love with the area and my ‘other’ cousins. I often heard my mother talk about  Ken Diamond and, what a treat it was to ‘find’ this park named after him. It is located in Glovertown and I visited there in the fall. This hike was indeed a treat to all my senses.

Walking on the boardwalk that crossed over a bog gave me a chance to see plants and grasses that I would not normally have noticed, and the earthy smell was intoxicating. Eastport and area October 2014 (6)

….and a smile never hurts.

Glovertown is also home to House of Diamonds which is the former home of  Ken Diamond and now showcases some amazing art. I believe they also hold concerts and what a lovely venue it is! For me that would be an ideal day….hike the park and then sit and listen to some fabulous music.  You never know what you will discover until you walk to it.

This whole area is just so comforting and peaceful.
