At the end of the work day George and I sometimes go for a drive around town. Early in the Spring there's never enough time...too much to get done....but now that the madness has subsided we can relax a little and enjoy the reasons why we live along the shore. The last couple of years we had gotten out of the habit of taking a ride.....maybe the cost of gas had made us feel guilty. I don't know? But it was something the two of us missed. We always go back to work when we're done but it does help us get re-energized and even inspired. Showing these images in B&W makes the idea of our short getaway..... seem even more calm and relaxing.
The wild flowers are beginning to come into full bloom. A few days before they were just starting. It's fun to see the change as time goes by. I've been thinking of scattering my own seeds to see how they do. It's been raining so much they probably would do fine but maybe I'll have to bring some water just in case. This park is the site of the towns old dump, believe it or not and it's now a sanctuary and siting area for birds that live along the marshlands of the Connecticut River.
The best part of this park is it overlooks the cove.
