Is there a more depressing place in winter than a lonely softball or baseball diamond? My answer to this question is: No, I don't really think so. This is Kiley Field on Eastern Prom. Most summer nights, it's very much alive! It's filled with boisterous voices, and lots of middle-age men running wildly all over this dirt infield. A couple of times each summer, I'll stop by and watch my brother play second base and just take in the wondrous views of Casco Bay. Soon to be covered with snow, summer nights can't come fast enough.
Ahhh . . . Kiley Field. . . before we know it, we'll be back there watching those "middle-aged men". As far as "running wildly" . . ., well, I guess that's just a matter of opinion!ReplyDelete
You could, of course, move to Florida for the winter and go back home in the summer and have summer nights all year 'round! :-)ReplyDelete
'Tis very nice being retired; in fact, it's everything it's cracked up to be. Half the time I can't even remember what day it is. And the best part is, I don't care what day it is!
It is a lovely description of a fabulous scene minus the snow.ReplyDelete
Here November is so grey!ReplyDelete
At least you have a beautiful blue in the sky, lucky you!
A baseball field with a wonderful view.ReplyDelete

awww. waiting for the boys of summer...ReplyDelete
i'll drink to that.ReplyDelete
Soon those pools of water at home plate will be iced over. You're right, warmer days can't come soon enough.ReplyDelete
It does look a little lonely.ReplyDelete
Great view! Nothing says summer to me like a baseball game does!ReplyDelete
A great view at the ballpark!ReplyDelete
We don't have baseball here, but I don't need any knowledge of the game to see the effect :-)ReplyDelete
And snow is on the way ...
Great pleasure to see these colors after grey Moscow days.ReplyDelete
Well, at least it's a photo op. Nice shot.ReplyDelete
