All this time, there’s been a little farm/zoo right down the road from us. Well, about 20 minutes away. But close enough. I’m talking here about Drumlin Farm, another of the wonderful Mass Audubon properties. It’s a working farm, but it’s set up so city slickers can bring their kids out to look at goats and chickens and tractors. I fought so hard the urge to correct a woman who kept telling her kids about why “he” was “fighting with the other cows” as we stood near a cow who was gently playing with a calf. But whatever. It was a beautiful day, and we had trails to explore.
At first Linus just let Yen plan the trip.
But then he was dissatisfied by the navigation and decided to take a more active role.
Here we are at the top of the drumlin. Just as the map promised, we could see both Mt Monadnock (sigh – look how fit I am in those pictures!) and Wachusett, two previous destinations (from pre-Linus times).
This picture is for Dad. I wanted him to see how pros prevent squirrels from messing with bird houses.
Here’s Linus checking out a tractor in preparation for Thanksgiving on the farm.
As we left, we came upon this herd of wild turkeys just roaming around near the parking lot, not a care in the world.
