Western MA Getaway

My friend Kelly's family moved to Northampton, MA when we were 15 and it did not take long for me to realize what a special place it is. The people, the restaurants and shops, the houses, all enclosed in beautiful countryside, it is a perfect escape from city life. Kelly is home for a little while this summer so I planned a last minute visit, 24 hours in western MA-

The Eric Carle Museum in Hadley, MA, home of the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

A stop at the Atkins Farm Country Market, locavore heaven.

A BLT on country wheat. Drool.

I also took the opportunity to take some portraits of Kelly's beloved Toby, the perfect dog. He is thirteen now and he is still active, swimming in the river almost every day!

Happy in the river...

Sad about the subsequent bath...

Happy to be getting towel dried.

Content!
