In my favorite woods there are a few boardwalks. When I was a kid I thought boardwalks were something special, because of the property in the game Monopoly. Now I realize it’s called a boardwalk because it’s just a walkway made of boards. Some of them can actually be quite humble, like this one which covers a swampy area at the edge of a pond.
Have you ever walked along a boardwalk?
What memories does the word boardwalk invoke? Summer evenings? Playing board games? Ice cream and the smell of the surf?
