It was a beautiful day, with good company (Isobelle Golightly's Lady, for those who follow her blog). What better to do than take a walk in the woods. Let me tell you something, Isobelle's Lady is a hiker, and can get around tough spots in the woods like nobody's business.
We walked an old logging trail in. There was coltsfoot everywhere.
A strange thing to find in the middle of the woods, Daffys, and pretty ones.
We found a deer rub.
And made it all the way back to the bay.
Mute swan on the bay.
Heres a small inlet off of the bay that we managed to get close to.
The way out was a bit more adventurous, with no trail and some serious ups and downs. Isobelle's Lady was very nimble on those slopes, but, I landed on my rear, just once, and not hard, but funny.
The find of the day was this small cluster of hepaticas. The picture is washed out, and doesn't show their really beautiful blue. The leaves were just as beautiful as the flower.
There was plenty of skunk cabbage.
And a mystery plant. Who knows what that will grow into?
We also found this group of burrows. It's too big for groundhogs, so we're figuring, maybe, fox.
I was very tired, by the time we got back home. But, we made many good memories, and had a lot of fun. It was the perfect way to spend Easter, with a good friend, and seeing great sights.
