Mini adventure 10/2/11

Today we went to the Sippican Rod and Gun Club for trap shooting. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the message that the breakfast was canceled and the shoot wasn’t until 9:30 so we were a bit early at 8:00. We went to the grocery store and grabbed some grub and came back to the club and noticed a State Park sign next door so we decided to go for a mini adventure. Turns out this is an access point to Haskell Swamp and is a Wildlife Management Area (that means controlled hunting, some animal stocking too). So we went for an hour impromptu hike. I showed Justin what this Swamp Yankee knew of the woods, what was edible, how one would make shelter, trying to find animal signs, etc. This little guy hopped in front of us and I caught it. He croaked us a little song and we decided it was good enough to earn his release so we continued on. When we turned around and came back his way he was still there hanging out and catching some sun rays. I resisted snapping shots of the many mushrooms out there. I have so many pictures of mushrooms. I don’t know, they’ve always fascinated me, such beauty in the middle of decay.

Hopefully we made some memories.
