Mackworth Island, Falmouth, Maine
Last week Wayne and I took a walk around Mackworth Island in Falmouth. The Island was donated to the State of Maine in 1946 by Governor Baxter to be used for public enjoyment and "a sanctuary for wild beasts and birds.'"
No bikes are allowed on the trail.
The view along the perimeter.
This ivy is suffocating the tree!
A beautiful pet cemetery from 1921.
Governor Baxter loved his Irish Setters.
It's so peaceful and quiet here.
One of the benches along the trail.
The Fairy Village!
Well appointed fairy quarters. This one was my favorite.
Another bench, chained to a tree like the others. I guess they are a hot item?
This feels like a skinny mini version of the Redwoods forest. However, I've never been to the real Redwoods (yet), so I'm probably way off here.
I don't know what these are but they are cute.
The afternoon sunshine was warm and welcome.
Taking off my shades.
I love the shadows...
...and making them.
An unknown hardy plant with new dainty flowers.
It was a beautiful Indian Summer day unlike today which is high in the 40s!
