It’s been a long time since we’ve taken a walk together, hasn’t it? I’m really excited to tell you about a new place that Dale and I walked the other day. We owe it all to Martha, too. First, because she told us about it and second, because when we got lost trying to find it she answered her cell phone and gave us directions. Thanks, Martha!
The place is called World’s End and it’s owned by the Trustees of Reservations. It’s about 40 minutes from home for us and well worth the trip.
Since this was our first visit and we wanted to get a real feel for the place we hiked the largest loop around the property. It’s about 4.5 miles of trail and we enjoyed every bit of scenery.
The trails are easy to walk and many of them are nice and shady – great on a warm day!
you can make this one bigger if you want to
The salt marshes provided views of wildlife.
And the openings between the trees provided views of city life. That’s the skyline of Boston, in case you didn’t know.
We really enjoyed our trek to Worlds End. The birds provided a wonderful score as we walked and Dale and I talked and talked and really caught up on things during this time together. I was tired when we finished but it was a great feeling. And boy did I sleep good that night!
It looks beautiful … did you take the dog?
It looks like a walk that’s new at every turn. Some day I’d love to do that walk with you. Isn’t the sleep you sleep after exertion like that the best!?
It’s sure is nice to have escape spots so close to home. Looks like a really nice place to stop and have some R&R without having to spend a week’s vacation doing it! It’s always a good thing to have “you & him” time.
Oh wow – it looks beautiful and Hingham is pretty close to us! Thanks for sharing this with us. It sounds like a great place to visit. 🙂
What a beautiful walk. Thank you for sharing it.
What a beautiful place to walk. Thanks for sharing with us.
what a great place to reconnect with dale and with nature!
Worlds End looks like a beautiful place to hike.
Thanks for sharing your walk with us.
What a lovely Wednesday walk! I wish we had more flatter trails like that to hike around here. Most hikes here involve strenuous uphill walking…groan.
What a beautiful place for some quiet time with your husband! And the name of the place is great, too.
Your pictures are beautiful! Thanks for the link to World’s End. I’m a North Shore girl but I’m looking for great walks/hikes everywhere and Hingham is beautiful so I may take a trip over there sometime soon. 🙂 Thanks!
Wow, what a great place to walk! I need to find a good place like that close to me in Portsmouth to do my Couch to 5k thing.
What a beautiful spot! It looks really lush and full of things to keep the walk interesting at every turn. Thanks for sharing:)
What a gorgeous place to hike!
Thanks for sharing the information! I’ve added it to my list of places to visit this summer.
I’d not heard of Trustees of Reservations, but kudos to them for saving this site. A nuclear power plant, indeed. Beautiful spot.
World’s End is on my list of places to visit this summer. Java would love haing a romp by the beach.

Did you do the hike that goes along the granite cliffs and overlooks Hull? If not, we’ll have to do it sometime. It’s gorg.
Thanks for sharing that! It was a beautiful walk!
I think the best part is that your cell phone still worked while in that beautiful area. ;^)
Great pictures of what sounds like a beautiful day. I’ve gone cross country skiing there in the winter, which I highly suggest now that you know how to get there!
Wow, what a beautiful hike! I love taking walks like those with my husband, too. It’s such a great way to reconnect with nature, and each other.

Thanks for reminding me of this fabulous place! It’s been a while since we’ve been there – now we’ll have to go again soon. And that’s a great snap of Boston, too!
How wonderful to take time for each other in such a gorgeous spot. And thank goodness for cellphone with good coverage areas!
What a beautiful walk! And to think, the only think I knew about Hingham was the Talbots’ mother store.
Looks like a beautiful place to walk.
what a beautiful place…I love doing walks like that! So glad you and Dale had such a nice time and were able to not only enjoy the views but the conversation, too.
looks delightful! i enjoy hikes in the woods, but i don’t seem to go often enough. and there’s always a fun disconnect of being secluded in nature but occasionally wandering within view of urban areas.
ahhh..my old stomping grounds. did you stop by the creative stitch? thanks for sharing.
Looks like a great place for a walk.
Ah… looks like a lovely place!
