I'm Kristen. I'll talk to just about anyone about just about anything and if I think the Southcoast would like to know about it, I write it.
This Former Mini-Golf Course Has Gone to the Birds (And Bunnies)
What is more of a bummer -- seeing one of your favorite childhood spots turned into something new, modern, and boring, or seeing one of your favorite spots go unloved and fall to pieces as the years go by?

This Stunning Family-Friendly Trail is Minutes From Bustling Wareham Crossing
I'd had the Horseshoe Mill trail on my list of trails for quite some time but never made it a priority because I assumed it was at the far, far end of Wareham.

We’ve all done it. We’ve all used the Google Maps Streetview feature to get a better sense of where something is, whether it's in relation to a landmark we know, to find the closest available parking, so on and so forth. In doing some ‘driving’ down the Flint in search of another local business, I had to throw it in reverse to get a better look at a sign. Or is it a billboard? ...
