We spent the day after Thanksgiving at Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary. There were a number of art and music activities for the day to engage the senses, but the kids were content to make their usual round of visits to the farm animals, taking a hay ride, and then a hike up the Drumlin.
It was a perfect day for it!
Bluegrass band by the fireside = peak cozy.
There were several shovels carved out as art work.
I was quite impressed by their beauty.

But three owls are the cutest.

One last shovel-sculpture, this one is totes!

One last view before parting.
On Sunday, as a pre-birthday activity, my family & I visited the North River Wildlife Sanctuary in Marshfield, MA. While the kids weren’t so into out (excepting the nature play area which was a lot of fun), the scenery was quite beautiful on a mid-Autumn afternoon. There were two loops to walk: one through Woodlands and one that circled a meadow and lead throught the phragmites to the North River itself. Here’s a sampling of my best photographs from the outing.
