Green Beach and Lake Edge Path
We won't stop long here at the beach, but I'll just share an
interesting tidbit as we make our way along the lake edge path.
Henry Fowle Durant, besides breeding rhododendrons,
believed that Wellesley woman needed exercise as part of their
education. He always walked briskly through campus, and hurried
students along who weren't walking quickly enough. One student
wrote in her journal that he told her and a friend, "You need
to make the blood bound through your veins; that will stimulate
the mind and help to make you good students."
If you look out on the lake, you might see seagulls or even
an osprey. But let's continue along the edge of the lake until
we come to the well-used path that leads to Tupelo Point.
