Cuttyhunk Island

3.5 miles; Cuttyhunk Island, MA I will admit to being a lifelong New Englander who has never been to any of the “Islands.” Never been to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard, and I always thought of Cuttyhunk as being halfway to Portugal.

Gammino Pond

2.4 miles; Seekonk, MA The final hike of the day was with the PCHC, again, but a different group in a different state. We hiked around Gammino Pond from the Seekonk (Massachusetts) Library right around sunset, and it was beautiful. Grand total mileage for the day was almost 8 miles. This pond was actually formed […]
