We passed up the traditional Memorial Day parades for a chance to enjoy some peace and quiet, and a little sunshine and water, down at Wolfe's Neck State Park. We had the place almost all to ourselves on a gorgeous morning. Sam was an intrepid explorer, playing happily in the tidal pools, and wanting to dip her toes in the ocean. So the two of us took off our sneakers and tromped across the rocks and seaweed and out into the mudflats, our toes squishing in the soft mud as the tiny shore crabs busily and quickly sidestepped out of our way and the periwinkles continued to make their designs in the sand nearby. We walked a bit in the shallow water before returning to the mud to dig in the ground with shells, as the osprey chattered back and forth to each other in their nest on the island across the small but deep channel. What a beautiful day to be out!
