A Short Hike

We met several homeschool families yesterday. The plan was to go for a hike on a wooded trail. Spring hasn't yet completely arrive on the island, and the trail was still covered with ice. We had to turn back as the walking became a bit unsafe. Instead the children ran around in the field. It was a great outing, nice to meet up with friends and we all agreed we will come back once spring is in full bloom! 

I thought the area was beautiful, even if it still looks like winter...

We need to come back and enjoy this creek in warmer weather!

Celeste pointed out this tree and the interesting pattern.
