Oh, good gigantic smile o’ the brown old earth,
This autumn morning! How he sets his bones
To bask i’ the sun, and thrusts out knees and feet
For the ripple to run over in its mirth;
Listening the while, where on the heap of stones
The white breast of the sea-lark twitters sweet.

1 thought on “Enjoying the Thanksgiving Season”
Just browsing through all of your blogs today and came across this picture; instantly realizing it was Lost Maples prior to noticing the caption. My dad lives in Concan, and we visit him every year for Thanksgiving. The day after feasting (gorging) on turkey and other things that make us miserable, we hike it off at the state park. Coincidentally, we were there with our daughters just two days prior to your post, on November 23rd. =) Beautiful place!
