Reid State Park and Around the House

June 22, 2005

A couple of weekends ago we went down to Reid State Park. We’ve been to this park before, on our honeymoon, and not much has changed. It’s still very pretty, despite the fact that we got there at low tide.

The beach looks nice, but I’m sure that if it had been a sunny day instead of chilly and gray, it would have been teeming with peoples.

Some Sea Roses (which smell wonderful) were growing between some rocks on the cliff overlooking the ocean.

On the way there and back, we passed this interesting rock painted like a turtle. I don’t think this is the ‘turtle of enormous girth’ but he’ll do for a scenic attratction.

In gardening news, the gladiolus that I planted in memory of my grandmother are growing quite well. They’re those green shoots between the hosta and salvia.

In the back yard, the field is full of white daisies, yellow dandelions and orange dandelions, which I had never seen before. There’s also plenty of purple clover blossoms and, oh yes, lots of mosquitos. Fortunately, there are still many dragonflies around and they’re doing a pretty good job keeping those numbers down during the day. At night however…I think they need to add a graveyard shift to their schedule.
